problem details
The glove box hinges (made of plastic) on our 2000 Golf TDI have failed three times in the 10 years we have owned the car.
2012 Volkswagen Golf TDI 40,000 mi,
While driving glove box opened, I th it was because I may have had something in the way of the lock so I took the bulky items out. After I cleared the glove box, I was sitting in my car, haven even started it and it popped open. Haven't had it repaired yet.
