T30 Upper Glove Box button?


Hi [sign in to see URL] post here.
I just acquired a mid-production T30 here in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. Seems like a fine car except that the button on the upper glove box (passenger side) is jamming. It presses in fairly well, releasing the glove box door, but won't return without a lot of messing about. It seems like a return spring might be jammed or else its just crudded up with dust, but I cannot figure out how to remove the door cover to access the button mechanism to see. I've taken off the three screws (each side and center of the button mechanism), which allows the cover to lift off a little bit, but not enough to see the workings. It appears that there are maybe a couple of pop rivets in the center of the lid, but generally pop rivets aren't meant to be removed.

Any ideas, or a schematic, showing how to access the workings of the button? Or conversely, how hard is it to just replace the entire glove box? I can't get parts here in Burkina Faso, so repair is preferred to replacement.

Thanks.

Re:


Just an [sign in to see URL] found out how to remove the box and take out the control unit (two screws inside the lid) and the problem turned out to be a little flexible plastic piece that had bent over and was jamming the latch. But I was looking at a junk car in South Africa and checked out THEIR glove box, and it had exactly the same problem. It makes me think that this is pretty common. I merely sliced off the bent plastic piece (it is like a little spring that keeps the latch from rattling around) and it fixed the problem.
