Pulling out glovebox difficulties on W210 ...

Hi

I am using these instructions:

http://www.bosch.de/aa/en/produkte/filter/innenraum/einbau/pdf/ceklas.pdf

I have removed all 6 screws. When I pull on it, it binds at the top. I seem to remember reading somewhere to just PULL IT.... and it will come out. It seems like it is going to break something.
Any ideas?
Anybody ever broken one?

Gary

That is the correct way. IF you use a plastic wedge and pull down on the top corners, It will come out easier. IF you pull, it will come out. Just loudly.

Be sure you have removed the right screws; at least the two in the bottom are covered by little ovoid plugs which make them invisible until you uncover them. Pull on the box - not the lid of course - the box will stand quite a bit of force.

P.S. I HAD TO CLEAN AND REASSEMBLE THE DOOR DAMPER ASS'Y AND NOW THE DOOR GLIDES OPEN SOFTLY AND SILENTLY (Oops darn caps lock) it's a small bellows I used dry silicone to lube it.

Thanks guys for all the help.
Do I have to remove the glove box light first? That seems to be where it is binding. How do I do that?

Thanks again Gary

NO you don't need to remove the glove box light on a 210. YES you do jerk it out by the lid, there is no other place to pull. I have had days where I have done this 3 or 4 times (gravy days, lot's of B services) and I have never ever damaged a glovebox. When I first started changing these, I did scratch up a wood spear above the box though, and because of this I now highly discourage any prying at all. The secret (come closer so everyone doesn't know "the secret", sssshhhhh) is to JERK it out, don't just pull and whine like a sissy boy, just a good clean JERK. Just as long as you're sure you got all the screws out, the ones that go in vertically on each side of the glovebox light are the one's to make sure you got out. I usually place my left forearm on top of the open glovebox door, my hand over on the right side of the door, then I use this hand plus my right hand on the right side of the door, in sort of a "bracing" position and give it one good jerk, that'll pop it right out. Anymore I don't even disconnect the wire for the glovebox, just let it hang and change the filter.
