Can't Remove Glove Box To Remove Cabin Filter
So....we just bought an '05 FXT and we couldn't be happier. I was wanting to check the cabin air filter, but I'm having a hard time removing the glove box. I found the thread with the instructions on how to remove it, but it seems to be stuck on the left side. I removed the 7 screws when you have the glove box open, and removed the 2 screws at the bottom of the glove box. There is actually a 3rd screw on the bottom at the far left, and I tried removing that one as well, but it didn't work.
I noticed on another website that there might be some "clips" near the left side of the box, and I think that is the problem. I don't want to break the clips by pulling on the glove box too hard, and was wondering if anyone could give me any insight.
We're happy to be Subaru owners, and can't wait to add a few accessories.
