when i did the VSS wire tap for my stereo i took apart the glove box area i think i broke the damper shaft that slows down the glove box as you open it.

it just slams all the way down now. i looked at the damper shaft and it doesn't look like anything is broken

to those of you with 09+ models, does your glove box come down slowly o just drop all the way?

Slowly. (too slowly, until I took a nick out of the piston seal)
The damper unclips off a pivot pin and can be opened if you want to check it out; perhaps it's come off this pin and is loose in the dash?

hmm, i think i may know what the issue is then. there is nothing capping the top of the piston area right now. i believe the cap may come off during the process. the question is where did it go...
