Glove box

Discussion in '1973-1991 K5 Blazer | Truck | Suburban' started by fireinthehole, Nov 28, 2002.

    Who designs a hinge out of plastic? I broke the glove box hings today, has anyone else? How did you fix it? After looking at it, its all one piece that bolts to the outer door, and i'm sure its not cheap. Let me know if you have any ideas on a fix.

    Thanks & Happy Thanksgiving

    A small length of stainless piano hinge should fix that up nicely. It's basically the same thing as the plastic crap...but stainless./forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Mine is from my (may she rest in peace) 81 suburban, too quick a part to change to bother with a new one.
