Question
Hi,

I accidently broke off the glove box damper (pulled glove box down too much) on my 2004 Camry.

Is it possible for me to reattach it myself, or if necessary, buy a new one and attach that? How would I do that?

Thanks you in advance!

Answer
If the mounting pegs on the glove box door and the dash are not broken off, get a new damper connect it to the peg inside the glove box then pull it down and either push it on the peg on the door or sometimes there is a phillips screw that attaches it at that point
