85 300sd - Glove Box Removal

Howdy..

Re-attaching wood trim to the glove box. Would like to remove the glove box door completely so that I can place clamps while the glue dries. Searched, but wasn't able to find anything on removing the glove box door. Thanks in advance.

Having just installed mine your timing is perfect.The wood is actually glued to a metal strip which can be removed from the glove box door without having to remove the whole door assy.Remove the phillips screws from right to left at the top of the door ,you should see the metal strip loosen,Ithink i had to loosen the inboard hinge also as the wood was slotted on that side.Then I put it on the bench,reglued and clamped up nice,and reinstalled.Good luck Johnny
