REMOVING 01 C320 GLOVE BOX

hello all... i've got a clicking in my dash whenever i turn my car on, and after removing the panel underneath the dash on the passenger side (usa) i found that it was coming from a sort of actuator having something to do with the air conditioning and heat. i'm attempting to remove the glove box to repair and replace this part, but i can't seem to get the glove box assembly out... i removed all of the bolts from it, but it is still attatched to the center console... can someone PLEASE help me as i'm trying to sell this car, and this is the only thing i need to do for it to be back to perfect condition?????? thanks in advance, and I searched also..

- remove centre console
- remove radio
- remove trim between glovebox and radio
- remove glovebox (dont forget the vertical screws inside the glovebox)

they are the foot well flap linkages
they are not behind the glove box you will not get both of them
this is not an easy jb for a beginner. im a seasoned tech and i do them in about
1 1/2 hours. it takes removing center console radio and trim center vents
headlight switch, dash under steering wheel( the part with the ignition switch is in)so the eis has to ccome out to. thers alot more and if you dont know what your doing it can get messy putting it back together. instuctions call for removing the whole dash. i would take it to the dealer just my 2 cents. i can walk you through it more detailed just pm me

I guess it depends exactly which vent it is. Generally removing the whole dashboard is the best way.

I think you are right. it sounds like the footwell flaps in which case removing the glovebox does nothing.
