Certain repairs call for removing the glove box from a Honda Civic. Replacing a radio, locating a main relay or servicing the Civic's cabin air filter are a few such repairs. If you are replacing the glove box, you can remove it fairly easily. But it's an uncomfortable job for anyone with a bad back; this is because you'll start the procedure by lying on the passenger floor and looking up underneath the glove box.

Step 1

Open the glove box and empty out all the contents. Place them in the driver's seat or in a bag outside the Civic.

Step 2

Close the glove box.

Step 3

Locate the retaining screws on the panel beneath the glove box. Pull these out with a Phillips-head screwdriver.

Step 4

Remove the panel and set it aside.

Step 5

Remove the retaining screws for the lower glove box hinges. You'll have to reach up to the bottom of glove box, now accessible after the panel removal.

Step 6

Reopen the glove box and allow it to drop to its open position.

Step 7

Gently squeeze the side panels of the glove box to unseat the upper hinges in the track rail.

Step 8

Remove the glove box.
