The plastic part of the glovebox that fastens onto the
hinge at the rear broke on my 89 325i. I'm not sure
why - it looks as though the plastic just got brittle.
Latch repairs on the e30 seem relatively common, but I
can't find any mention of this kind of problem with
the e30. Is this prone to happen? The glovebox will
need to be replaced since the piece is part of the
glovebox, and if the plastic is prone to wear, I'll
get a new glovebox rather than something used.
