Default 2005 Glove box wont open.

Hey guys, new to the forum. I just bought a 2005 pilot and the glove box will not open. (it was like that when I bought it)

What would be the best way to get it open? I'm reluctant to pry it open as I don't want to tear up the plastic. ( and no its not locked)

Thanks!

Search YouTube for "Honda pilot cabin air filter" and follow the instructions for removing the glove box. Once you have removed the 2 screws under the glove box whatever is holding it up should pop loose. And if not it will be much easier and safer prying it open with the bottom loose.

- eat some spinach
- lift weights
- get a bigger BFH
- activate the passenger airbag
- hire a "professional" off the street kind of guy. They can get these things open no problem


Or do what RSG says and just unscrew the thing. The latch is jacked up and probably needs to be replaced.

Sure hope there is a pot of gold in there!
Once you remove the screws. It won't move as the stops that have to be removed to replace the CAF will hold it in place.
But I think you'll be able to lever them out of the way with a long screwdriver leaving just the stuck catch to release.
Poa job but worth it in the end. Might want to get a new CAF and replace it once its off!
