Console Compartment Door loose - 07 Corolla
Hello, I'm new here and I'd like to say Hi to everyone.
I bought a 2007 Corolla LE last year, and it's been awesome ever since. However, something's bugging me. On the center console (under the Heat/AC controls) are two compartments which swing open - the top one folds down, the bottom one swings out kind of like a tray. They have a certain resistance when you open them which keeps them from flying open when you, say, accelerate from a stop. Recently, the bottom one has lost this resistance and is very loose (it opens on its own now). I'm not a professional mechanic or anything, but I feel comfortable doing a little of my own work on things like this. So, I was wondering - has anyone else had trouble like this with the center console compartment doors? If so, any suggestions to fix it so the door stays shut when it's supposed to?
p.s. - if my description is poor, the part I'm talking about is the "Aux Box Type B" from the owner's manual.
