Article 1291 - Glove Box Door Adjustment

TSB #86 - February 23, 1968
(Cortina Model "C")

Field reports indicate that the glove box door may stick in the closed position or fall open during vehicle operation over rough roads. This problem is attributed to improper adjustment of the glove box catch and/or retainer.

If this problem is encountered during pre-delivery it can be corrected by readjusting the catch and/or retainer as shown in Fig. 4. In some cases the lid hinge will prevent the lid closing fully. With the retainer removed the lid should close without any resistance. By bending the hinge upwards at the point where it joins the lid, correct closing action of the lid can be obtained.
