Hi there, I am facing the same problem. The left hinge on my glove box broke. I would like to :
Take my brake apart and trimmed down the rubber gasket inside (as done by blackcat1965).
Drill a small hole (about 2- 3 mmm) in the end of the damper (as done by Vincent D).
Trouble is, I don't know where to do it. I have attached some pics, and hope that someone can kindly point out where to take the brake apart or where to drill the small hole.
When all this is done, I will use epoxy to glue the hinge back to the lid. Thank you for your help and drive safe. Oh, and my B6 A4 is right hand drive.
