Glove box fell out !

Just bought a 1986 Chevy C10 pickup. Opened the glove box once...fine...second time it hit the floor. It looks like the hinge is a plastic strip along the bottom?? Anybody had to do this repair? Tips? Suggestions?

Re: Glove box fell out !

The hardest part is going to be finding the part you need. I doubt you'll find anything useable at the junkyard, so will probably have to buy new.
Or you might try to use some regular hinges from the hardware store.

Re: Glove box fell out !

Thanks for the link. I didn't realize that the "hinge" is actually part of the molded plastic glove box. I may try a piano hinge from Home Depot...it's just an old farm truck.
