Default Broken glovebox hinge support on 1991 Accord

Good morning.

My 1991 Accord glovebox is hanging down on the righthand side.
I removed the glovebox, and discovered that the righthand bracket
(the bracket that the hinge crossbar bolts onto) has broken off from
the dashboard support. This is a metal strip encapsulated in the foam
core of the dashboard. Any ideas on how I might fix it?

Thanks
-Mark

Get another glovebox from the wreckers. Really cheaply, too.

The glovebox door itself is fine, it's the hinge

mounting on the dashboard assembly that has broken off.

Photos here:

The broken piece is in the two bottom photos. Note the

metal bracket encapsulated in foam, the metal bracket

has cracked and broken away from the dashboard frame.



I'm thinking that perhaps I could epoxy the broken

bit back in place, and then surround it with a

layup of fiberglass cloth and epoxy?

Just get some JB Weld & reinforce it with a thin strip of metal, or dig into
the dash of one at the wreckers & see if the part is actually removable.

Hmm. Maybe I can fabricate a metal dogleg and JB Weld the broken
piece to it. Then reattach the dogleg to the dashboard with a fiberglass
layup.

Wanna re-post that pic of the glovebox opening with either your finger or
an arrow showing where that piece came from? Most of your pictures are
taken from up too close, and with few recognizable reference points.

If the fractured piece is part of the padded dash cover, I've successfully
repaired similar breaks with pieces sawed off of wrecks.

some plastics are next to impossible to glue.
I have found some success with construction adhesive,like Liquid Nails.

I haven't yet. I'm interested in any ideas that might work.

I'm thinking about getting some metal stock and making a dogleg to match
the angle of the righthand edge of the glovebox opening. Rivet or JB Weld
the broken piece to the end, fit it in place, and plaster it down with some
epoxy and fiberglass cloth.
