    did mine the other day, was a fiddle to get the broken ones out, ended up using a pair of grips and pull them towards you then they pop out.

    New ones went straight in and works perfect now.... cheaper then a new glovebox!!

    yeh thats wot mine did, basically snapped leaving about half inch left on the hinge, mole grips will do it, the best way is how i described as they wont come out sideways.
