Default 37 glove box clips

Looking for instructions on installing the spring clips that hold the glove box door shut. I had them hooked but the door wouldnt stay closed. Thanks Bruce

Not sure on 37, but 36 has to go all the way behind door hinge hold down.

I do not know about the 37 Ford glove box, but the 36 Ford glove box door can be installed fairly easily.


Place the door and the hinge plate inside the box. Install the bottom screws with acorn nuts (note previous photo showed screw ends inside the box, which I believe is not correct) inside the box loose as possible.


Then with someone holding the glove box door, install the springs on each end of the door with the door closed as much as possible. Then tighten the screws into the acorn nuts and the door should then be able to be closed and stay closed.


Hope it works for you like it did for me.

Are you using reproduction springs? If so, that may be your problem.

If you will notice in the picture I have one original and one reproduction spring. Not an issue, they both sit about the same.

If those springs are not hooked in the correct position on door and hinge plate, you will have trouble. Once I learned the correct way to do those on 35 & 36's, it became a very simple procedure.
