Hi mate, I had similar problem. Found out the fuse had blown. If you look under passenger side dash it is located there. You will have to remove the container that holds your stuff in the dash. Then work the fuse box down to the floor, that bit is a bit of a struggle and can be a pain in the !Removed!, but you should be fine. Then just a simple matter of changing the fuse ;)

It would be a good idea to not put it back to its original place for a day or two incase the fuse goes again... which happened to me :rolleyes: so to save you the hassle I would put it back to its home after a couple of days just incase the fuse does go later that day or following day. If it does go then it suggests one of your remote central locking mechanisms is faulty, which happened to me.

Hope this helps :D

if you squeeze the sides of the glove box in, the glove box should drop no problem. ive not had any problems with it on my car yet, pulled out very easily.

but as said, check the fuses behind the glove box

Thats a shame mate that its not simly a fuse.

I had to replace my passenger side mechanism not cheap from dealer, I ended up getting it from a local breakers.

The fuse is on the back side of the fusebox and obscured by the wiring.
