The glove box latch housing is what contains the “drive” latch and “driven” latch. If, like most E30 glove box latch housings, yours is cracking and crumbling with age, you can now replace it with a 3D printed part. This allows you to replace it without having to get the entire OEM assembly. Simply remove the latches (it is a good idea to replace you replace at least the the “drive” latch at the same time). It’s an easy, 15min job that will keep your glove box operating perfectly for another 30+ years!
