Lotus Elan

Plus 2 glovebox catch

PostPost by: NYK » Thu Nov 08, 2018 11:37 am

I have bought a new dash for the Plus 2 I’m restoring. The old dash had no obvious signs of a catch for the glovebox and the glovebox door on the old dash and the new dash has no hole drilled for a lock. So how is it held closed? Photos would be a great help.
Thanks
Nic

Mine's a late +2S130 and it has a "push to latch, push to unlatch" latch.

About a quid on Ebay. Don't get suckered into it being a special Lotus bit.

I have one holding the door shut underneath the stairs! Its been there for years.
