\r\n Irritating little problem: I use my glove compartment daily to store documents and travel log. When I close the glove compartment and open it later, the contents of the glove compartment have been tossed forward into the wiring. I am required to reach forward of the glove compartment shelf and pull my documents out of a tangle of wires. Did anyone else experience this problem and come up with a solution?\r\n

    \nI used to have one that sat on the seat like a bucket, but after the second time if flew off during a hard braking I got tired of picking everything up off the floor \r\n

    \r\n I think the only good use for the glove compartment is for the owner\'s manual and a pair of gloves. Though it surprises me with how deep the dashboard area is, why cars won\'t have much bigger glove compartments. I wedge my papers above the driver\'s side sun visor, but then my wife invariably gets a lap full of papers and mail when she borrows my car as she uses the sun visor as a sun visor and not a paper storage location.\r\n

    \r\n If there is no way to "fix" the glove compartment dump truck mechanism, I suppose that I can use the storage area on the driver\'s side door for my mileage log. I do not understand why a glove compartment was designed with no rear panel to contain the contents of the area.\r\n
