glove box question??

I'm having trouble removing the glove box/storage compartment/oh **** handle out of my YJ?? I have removed every screw I can see! am I missing a secret screw in the back? or am i just not pulling hard enough? I'm trying not to break it. Thanks

Yep. There are 4 pita screws on the back of the grab handle. Gotta take the top pocket out to get to em and it's a tight fit even with a stubby screwdriver

Garage
Mine had 7/16 nuts on the back side, not screws. PITA, regardless.


Best plan would be to fold the windshield and pull off the dash; there are a bunch of screws but they are all easy to get to and it will go fast.

Change the speakers while you're in there.

Mine also had nuts. It obviously is different at some point by year. Here's some pics of mine out, maybe that will help you. The screws will be in the same spots as the bolt studs if that's what you've got.









Nevermind my mess of wires back there. lol

thats interesting. Whatever they are they are a royal pain to get to never mind get a tool onto. Its almost even worse when trying to put it back together.
