    How to get glove box to open on 01 Virage?

    The little glove box below the handlebars. The push button works but you must get your fingernail underneath it for the lid to come up. I've tried grinding down the catch and the buttons plastic lip and still can't get it to release clean. My 99 Genisis with the twistable opener rather then the push button works EVERYTIME. This push button setup on the virage does not.

    Anyone else had this issue and found a way to solve it?

    I still fight with my own Virage glove box lid

    It will stick differently on the trailer than when floating. There was an upgrade seal that was supposed to help, but even with that I sometimes get it open easy, sometimes not so easy.

    Bryan may be cooking up a fix, but have not heard whether it works.

    That was for the MSX. Miraculously, that lid started working just fine for me. Nothing to mess around with any more.

    Give it some fast light raps with your palm and it will pop open.

    I own three Virgaes and all of them have that issue. I push the button and pull on the side at the same time to open then.
