What's up, guys? I'm Andy from 1A Auto. In this video, I'm going to show you how to remove the glove box door on this 2001 BMW 325xi. If you need parts for your vehicle, click the link in the description and head over to

Underneath, I'm going to take this screw out right here, and then over here a couple more screws and a bracket that's going to come off as well. With that off, grab this and slide this part of the glove box out. It's a pin on this side. Just use a trim tool. Try to remove the pin, push it that way, and slide it out. Set the pin aside, and then on the other side there's a pin as well. Push the pin out from the inside and then pop it off just like that.

Now we'll take the glove box door. Slide this up over this bar at the back, right there. Then we're going to install these pushpins first. Probably easier to put this one on first, so you're going to slide that rod out. So you want to get the hole lined up first and then slide the pin through. There we go. I'll do the same on the outside and just slide it in. Perfect. I'm going to take and we'll actually close the glove box. That'll make it easier. We have these brackets. These are going to go on right here. I'm just going to get these started. Once they're all started, then I can snug them down. Just double check and make sure the glove box works. Perfect.
