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.
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.
