Glove compartment latch.

Hello everyone!! I know it's been a while since I've last posted. Been on vacation in Aloha Hawaii and enjoying it. But when I returned, my glove compartment for my 94MB C280 could not open. The tech removed the handle and found that a little plastic piece that's connected to the cylinder that pushes down on this lever in the inside of the glove compartment lid to open the glove compartment broke. ok.. run on sentence... but anyway, they could not find what part to order... in their computer, that piece was not included in the purchase of a new cylinder and neither was it in the part of the latch. Does anyone know what part this is? Maybe I'll take a pic later on and scan it to make things clearer.. any help would be appreciated~! Thanks

I think there was an open campaign on this. My car had the glove box fixed per MB recall or something? I don't know the specifics. But I have it on my Master Vehicle Inquiry. I will get the specifics for you later if you'd like.
Can't wait to see pic...
My glove box stayed shut once, and the handle would stay in the open position. I eventually got it to open, then removed screws around handle (inside of?), and put them back on, and it has worked ever since!

When my car had 425 miles, the Glove box lock/striker was binding and replaced under warranty. Damage codes 6802416 if that means ANYTHING at all! Well good lucking fixing it... I wish I could help.
