    Glove Box Lock - BJ8

    I am repairing/rebuilding the glove box lock on my BJ8. The previous owner apparently took a channel lock to it and unfortunately broke the inside. It looks like two of the four prongs (on the inside latching mechanism) that surround the tumbler are broken off and missing.
    Does anyone by chance have a picture of the inside of the glove box lock, or by chance have a usable latching mechanism they would be interested in selling?
    Thanks in advance.

    Thank you to the very kind and generous people that have helped me with my glove box lock. The Healey community is a very unique group. Everyone's unselfish sharing of knowledge, time, and parts is truly amazing. It makes me proud to be a member of a group where people help others to this extent.


    I wish I could shake hands with all those that have helped me this last year as I worked to get my car on the road.


    Happy New Year!

    You can send your membership dues directly to me

    But, yeah, the amount of help forthcoming from Healeyphiles is amazing, from around the world (I had a member of an Aussie club send me an adjustable timing set that I haven't seen anywhere else). Not sure if other marque 'members' are as generous with time and knowledge, but surely none are better.
