06 Corolla Little Compartment by Gear Selector...Door Problem


Just forward of the gear selector in the 06 Corolla there are two little compartments in the dashboard, beneath the radio. One is a flip down door, but the lower one flips down and the whole “drawer” comes out to let you use the “drawer” as a small storage, for coins or whatever- it works the same way a glove box does.

Anyhow, I tried pulling it out the little thing as you would remove the glove box when changing the cabin air filter- by pushing in one side and trying to wriggle it out.

Well I haven’t gotten it out to see behind as I originally wanted, nor have I been able to get it seated again properly so if opens/shuts easily.

Does anyone know any trick for this?
