Removing Glove Compartment Panel?

Is there a how to on this?

I wanna spray paint the panel in front of the passenger side black and the bit in front of the driver, the driver's side is easy to remove but I can't figure out passenger.


Has anyone done this before?

OK to remove the glove box.

The first thing I do is remove the "string" on the right side of the glove box. Yyou pull the whole black plastic "bracket" towards you. You can see the two holes, snap it in the larger whole and slide it out the side. (It can be a bit stubborn, it takes some force)

Then after you remove that, I pull the side of the glove box in to the centeer. You do this to get those 2 pieces that rest in the tracks out. They're the pieces with rubber boots on them.

After you do the the box will fall all the way down, dumping anything in there on the floor.. so empty it first. When it falls down it will expose a number of screws holding the box on the hinge, remove those and you're done.

Maybe I was thinking about a different car I did. Either way he got it done. Once you get down to that step you should be able to see how it comes off

Might want to check the cabin air filter while the glove box is out of the way. I changed mine at around 60k miles and it was filthy.
