How to fix a Stuck Glove Box on a Cadillac

Cadillac Glove Box

I had an issue with the glove box on my Cadillac XTS where the thing would get stuck once I tried to open it. I would press the button to open the glove box and all it kept doing was making a “click-click” sound and it wouldn’t open.

So I did a bit of research and found that there is a video which shows you a short how to fix – check out this video. There is also mention that the plunger is defective (short stroke) or it’s not making good contact with the latch on the right side.

Has this happened to anyone else? Leave a comment below and let others know how you went about fixing this on your Cadillac.

  1. Yes!..I’ve a 2014 Cadillac XTS VSport, and this is the 2nd time I’ve had this problem. The dealership fixed it the first time, but now it’s doing it again. Next time I schedule an oil change, I’ll have ’em look at it again. This is an annoyance that I don’t think should be experienced with such an expensive car…

    1. Have the same problem. Cadillac’s are not is they use to be all make in china. I’m trading mine in for a Lincoln
