I opened my glovebox last night to find a small piece of plastic laying in it. It came from the glovebox latch and while the latch was still working, it was easy to see the other side would soon break too. So i superglued it back on and then used one strand of fiberglass to reinforce each side of the latch mechanism. This would be a smart thing to do for anyone who wants to make their latch last a long time since this is a common problem.

Nice to see it done properly- I just removed my broken latch and replaced it with industrial strength velcro. :roll:
