Lost my lockable right glove box cover

Post by HandymanHerb »



Can't seem to find one list on Wingstuff, found the boxes for sale but no cover, That will teach me to check my tire pressure, I guess I didn't get the cover locked back in and I couldn't find it on the road but being in heavy traffic I'm sure it got destroyed.

If someone can point me to where I can get one or show me where it is on the Wingstuff diagrams

The chrome is just a stick on after market accessory. It is not stock.

When you get it if it has a lock or if you buy another lock you can change that lock with you lock on the gas flap so it will be the same as your ignition key and use the lock on your gas flap and make a key knob out of it,

That is pretty good advice. That is what I would do too. But before making that key knob, I would duplicate the key and keep it on a key chain or in the bike someplacce just in case the key knob was lost or stolen. It's always good to have an extra key.

If you get another lock with your new part you can take it to a locksmith and they can punch out a new key from the number on the lock cylinder.

If I don't do Facebook or Twitter, do I still have to do Social Media Distancing????
Those who say it cannot be done should try not to interrupt those who are doing it.

I'll just carry an extra key if I can't get it rekeyed, I rather not be locked out of my gas tank and you know it would be out of town when it got missing, and I go in the gas compartment more than I do the glove box unless I'm grabbing my air gauge to check tires.

Do you really need it to lock? You can just modify the lock so that it doesn't work, it would be very unlikely that anyone will check -- they will see the lock and just assume it's actually locked.

Not being locked is how I lost the last one on the road, it blew off

Putting it on a leash would have prevented that.

I'm simply suggesting an alternative to spending the money to have a locksmith rekey to match your current key.
