Cool Glove Box latch broken


My 2005 CLK 500 (AMG wrap) glove box latch is broken. Does anyone know if the handle part comes with the latch hook that will keep the darn thing closed? Or do I have to buy the whole new glove box door?

Thanks for any help!

You need a whole new door. Stupid design, but it is what it is.

I'm having a similar issue and found the parts on parts.com. These part numbers correspond to ones I can find in the above picture, but the nomenclature is different.
On the parts.com diagram:
#4 - Part Number: 2036890058
body hardware, instrument panel, glove box, catch

#5 - 2096800184
body hardware, instrument panel, glove box, latch


From the list pictured above I can find these part numbers but do not see them on the diagram:
265 A 209 680 01 84 .CATCH
ELECTRIC STRIKER 001 L
265 A 209 680 01 84 .CATCH
ELECTRIC STRIKER 001 R
And
160 A 203 689 00 58 .BUTTON

I hope this helps someone else.

Those are parts for the "striker" - the part attached to the dash. There is no separate part for the "latch" - the part on the door. You have to buy a whole new door if its latch is broken.

I recently had a similar problem where the glove box on my '05 CLK55 would not close. I was almost sure that one of the locks on the glove box door itself was broken, but after hours of troubleshooting i was able to fix it by locking and unlocking the car with the remote and jostling the interior locking mechanism on the glove box door with a screwdriver.

Hoping this will help someone else. Good luck!

Do you happen to know the part number for a whole new glove box door? My interior is Stone on a 2006 CLK500. I plan to sell this car soon so I need to get it fixed.

So I found this.

Glove Box Diagram

I just want to make sure that the part Glove Box Handle (20968006708J41) $59.80 won't fix my problem and that I need to get Glove Box Door (20968000988J41) $281.75. Thanks.

Kevin,

You should definitely try the technique mentioned in my post. Often these glove boxes are not broken and are in fact locked, which prevents them from being closed. Good luck!

I'll try but my situation is a little harder. Your glovebox wouldn't close meaning you have access to the mechanisms. Mine won't open so I'm pretty limited.
