Glove box spring location
Does anyone have any pics or ideas of where the spring to the glovebox goes to a 65 gmc truck. I have an assembly manual but canít find any answers there. Any help or pics would be appreciated - thanks, Angie

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1960-1966-G...EAAOSwTM5Y3Au3 This is a really bad picture I found. This question has been asked at least 5 times in 12 years. I searched our archives and did not see any pictures. Just a lot of requests for pictures. This is a GMC only item, so can someone please post Good, Clear, Well lit pictures of the spring installed. This would help a lot of people.....or advise if we have it somewhere already.

AZKen, I was not aware there was a spring so first time seeing this.

Thank you for posting the eBay link.

Even the grainy photo's help some. I do not have a spring on my glovebox.

Re: Glove box spring location
My 1960 did not either so I'm really wondering what year had these or did everybody's fall off. The vendors say "60-66 GMC Only". It is not needed anyway.
The hinge/arms design changed mid era, I think. No mention of glove box spring in the 1960 Master Parts Book. Guessing it is a 64-66 thing.

This YouTube is for a 66 Ford truck, but it does give some insight on installation. I will have to go back and look at what's behind my glovebox liner.


On eBay listings for ford glovebox springs, there is a left and right-hand side. I do not know if the same applies for the GMC
