What's up, guys? I'm Andy from 1A Auto. In this video I'm going to show you how to replace the glove box on this 2010 Toyota RAV4. If you need parts for your vehicle, click the link in the description and head over to 1Aauto.com.

Open the glove box. There's little pins that come out of the glove box right here. I'm going to use a trim tool. Pry these out on both sides. You could use a screwdriver, as well. Pry that out, and then this basically slows the glove box down when you're opening it up. It's like a shock. I'm just going to take some needle nose pliers, just squeeze right here, and take my trim tool and just pop it off like that. And then can take the glove box and just slide it out.

So there's these hooks that are on the bottom of the glove box. Now, these are going to slide onto these rods right here on the dash panel. Now, they are slotted, so if you slide it on at a certain angle, they go on easier, just like that. And then we'll take this rod for the damper. Actually, we'll just slide this up a little bit, clip that into place, and then take the damper. Slide that over, and you're good to go. Double check, make sure it works.
