    Hi there,

    So ive had the car over a year now, and got two issues that id like to get fixed, first off, the glove box was opening nice and "slow" but managed to push it/ pull it open one day and something "cracked" and now it just falls open, can it be fixed and how if possible?

    Second issue is the centre armrest, at the back low theres the 12v hole, now last year when on road trip, had charger there, and as ive got 3 kids at the back , they have managed to "push" the 12v thingie inside the armrest, now is it possible to open "armrest from back" where the vents are so i could get it back in position, fix it , so could use it again?

    Thanks for help!

    Here, my shoddy paint skills, under the flap theres the 12v socket, and its "fallen" in there, but now the trim removal site u gave i can get it open and set it back in place. Cheers for that!

    Yes, you should, but not very dark and let proffessionals do the job....i tried 20 years ago it was disaster.
