Glove Box Latch Information Needed

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know what is supposed to hold the driver side glove box lid closed?   I have a knob that is retained by one  screw on the inside of the glove box door and nothing else.  Is there supposed to be some sort of detent?
The psgr. side has the lock that twists into a slot in the dash but, I have nothing for the other side.

What year of car and what model? Zephyr or Continental?

Woops. Guess that would help a little. 37 Zephyr coupe.

If its any thing like my 38 Zephyr the lid has a spring clip at bottom center to keep it shut, should be same on passenger side. The spring/clips are horseshoe shaped 1/2" wide and tricky to clip in.

Thanks.  Those seem to be MIA.  Could you shoot me a photo of yours?
