The bottom glove compartment won't latch shut on my 2006

Customer Question

the bottom glove compartment won't latch shut on my 2006 prius
JA: Are you fixing your Prius yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I'm trying. I took the strut off and opened it all the way up to see if anything was behind it, but no. It still is stuck open.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I haven't used this service before, is there a charge?

Hi my name is***** see you are having trouble with your glove box latch. If the glove box will close all the way but not latch it is likely the latch itself has a problem or has failed. Let me know

How would I replace the latch? It closes all the way, just won't stay closed
Expert:  Daniel Wilson replied 2 months ago.

You will need to remove the glove boxes to access the latch to replace it. Click these links to help with removing the glove boxes. Make sure the lower one is aligned with the latch... If so and wont latch, replace the latch
