removing glove box lid

Dear X5 folk

The top padded leather surface of my glove box lid is lifting and stopping smooth opening. I want to remove the lid and glue it down using a clamp, (car out of warranty). Quite mechanically minded but removal method certainly isnt obvious.

Has anyone removed the lid and has some tips on how to do so.

Merry Christmas to people who despite the odd niggles, have found the perfect car!

This is a know defect/flaw. You might want to talk to your dealer to see if they will do something in spite of it being out of warranty. Sometimes they'll fix these know flaws/defects out of warranty as a customer satisfaction item.
