my glove box hates cold weather.

Does anyone else have an issue with the latch on their glove box sticking inside the glove box door when it's cold? I usually have to pry it out with a knife or something to get it to pop back out, then pray it latches. car is a 14 GTI

If you screw the screw too tight that holds in the handle u can't open it. Not sure if that's related or not. I hate the latch tho I'd rather have a red pull strap.

What really sucks is when the latch breaks. I had that happen on my mk4. I went to open the glovebox and the latch just popped right off. For a while I was able to open it by sticking my fingers in the hole and I could figure out what I need to do to open it. Then one day all that stuff inside there broke and I couldn't open my glovebox at all anymore. Then on another day I needed to open it so I could get my wheel lock out, so I saw sawzalled that shit open. Turns out my wheel lock wasn't in there anyway.

I think you guys are misunderstanding what I'm saying when I say latch. I mean the "catch" that protrudes from the left side of the glove box door. It gets stuck inside the mechanism. Since this wasn't obvious I'm gonna guess this is unique to me lol
