    Hi all, glovebox won't open, button when pressed does nothing. I've checked the valet key too which is in the correct position. Any ideas how to open it without pulling off trim above the glovebox? Many thanks.

    As the title says, the glovebox will not open! The button presses but nothing at all happens. Can it be forced, if so how? If not whats the way to open it? Btw is the button electrical, or a mechanical cable? Thanks.

    Hi folks - sorry if this has been asked before. I'm sure I've seen it somewhere, but can't find it now. My glovebox won't open regardless of key position. Also, the boot will only open via the key fob or key - not from the handle. A good search has convinced me that both problems are connected...

    I have just bought my E70 and one of the first thing that I noticed was that when you press to open the glovebox it sticks and you have to catch it and open it manually. Upon investigation it appears that the leather is peeling in the corners and catching. The recommended fix is to replace for...
