There's a tiny storage compartment just in front of my left knee. The door won't stay shut unless I wiggle it and wedge it in sideways. I'd be tempted to just glue the thing shut, but I have to open it to get to my trunk release. Is this something that is practical to fix, or is it better to order a replacement?
Take the door out n glue like a small metal weight to the back of it n put it back. Problem solved there's no weight in the back of it due to staying open .
The spring loaded latch probably fell out. Look on the floor for one of these.

You can re-install in place either on the right or left of the frame.

It just presses in place and only the fact that it's toothed holds it in place. It kinda bites into the plastic.

Here you can see the left area in the red circle where latch goes. There is one just like it to the right but only one latch was ever attatched.

Be careful not to break the hinge pin, seen broken here. (area circled in blue)

Had to laugh about this little cubby door. I put stuff in it occasionally. About 2 weeks after buying the car (new) I hadn't shut it all the way and got back in the car and banged it with my knee (which I've done a few times since then). It's been crooked every since. Not bad but just a little annoying.
