Difficuty aligning the sunglass compartment with the locking mechanism
I could use some help with aligning my glove box/sunglass compartment on my '92 300 SL after I replaced the center A/C vent, and in the process broke the brittle sunglass compartment upon removal. Was able to get a replacement part, but unable to align it with the lock. When I shut the lid and I depress the lock, the lid does not open. I went into the slot underneath with a pick tool to depress the locking mechanism to get it open again, but after a few times I gave up. My MB guy says I need to remove the passenger side knee bolster and remove the pass. side airbag to get to the lock and align it from the right. That seems like a lot of billable hours to me. I know the screws in the back of the compartment align the unit, but it is seemingly impossible to get it aligned with the lock? Has anybody experience this issue before?
