Default Glove compartment hook

Mine is missing. My wife's knees have had enough as I keep opening the glove compartment to keep the cd changer door shut. Does someone have an idea where it retracts to? Part number?

The cd changer door behind the glove box? It slides horizontally? No?

Yes it tries to. However it decides to move the slightest after the hard right turn or even a minor pothole.

Maybe you could put some cardboard behind the door slide to keep it from moving. Certainly cheaper than $300 from eBay or $2k from the dealer for a replacement changer, and if it works...

Or some blue painter's tape.

The cd changer door? When it slides it ejects the CD a magazine, what's with your wife's knees. Close the glove box!

The cd changer door is defective and needs to be closed again and again. The glove box has to be opened to close the cd changer door and therefore without the gentle opening of the glove box, it just causes more problems.

Does the CD player load and unload the magazine, does it work, if it works, stick a piece of cardboard in it. If it's broken take it out
