Does your WK glove box have a dampener?
 
While installing the ambient light kit in my WK, I noticed that there is a hole on the inside right of my glove box. Hadn't paid attention to it before, but a look at the parts manual suggested that some WK came shipped with a glove box dampener. My guess is that when you open the glove box, the glove box won't quickly drop open it will slowly open when the dampener is hooked up.

Anyway, I ignored it, but upon closer inspection, it looks to me like a dampener may have been there at one point. I recently had my heater blend door serviced and I wonder if the service tech just threw out the dampener.

Do any of you have a glove box door dampener installed on the right side of the glove box? Curious if it should be there.

your right *sox* there is on on european model I found mine by removing my glovebox same as 4.whoa :p.
It's only made with plastic tube and piston ...
Suzieque have you noticed any huge difference ?
Meaning is you glovebox coming really slower down ?
Probably mine has a small problem because I have a o ring at the end of the tube , i don't know if it's useful were it stays :lol:

Yup, the glove box drops slower. I like it and think it is a worthwhile mod.
