Guys,this has more than likely been covered elsewhere,was just wondering what sort of a job it is to remove the glove box from my Falc.Is it quick & easy?how do I go about it??.The car is currently at a Ford dealership here in the Gong having the ignition barrel replaced,it's doing the no accessories thing,also the drivers side power window motor shat itself,the fan speed resistor is also in need of replacement which I've ordered.Read a lot about guys replacing the resistor but never really describing the glove box out part& seeing as how the dealership has already stung me about 700 large for the ignition&window motor,you could say I'm pretty keen to save some cabbage on the resistor job.Any help greatly appreciated,thanks in advance.

if its just the glovebox you want you im pretty sure from memory you just open it and kinda twist it out.

just open it and you will see where the guides that hold it in are.

Thanks all,just as easy as you guys described,actually I'm embarrassed by how easy it was,I guess some times I just gotta pull my finger out.Couple of things,first,once I pulled the resistor away,I noticed through the hole there is a s**t load of leaf litter trapped between what looks like refrigerant tubes and the heater core,no crap it looks like a pile of mulch in there,so whats the best plan of attack for removal??.Secondly,but possibly more worrying is the fact that the resistor cured the fan speed problems,now it appears that the compressor won't kick in,,,,,any thoughts????.Maybe I should've started a new thread,,thnx again.
