Opening and closing the glove compartment

If necessary, unlock the glove compartment. It is locked when the key slot is vertical.

  • To open, pull the handle ⇒ Fig. 116 .
  • To close, push the lid up.

Owner's Manual slot

The Owner's Manual ⇒ Fig. 117Ⓓ  is located in this slot and should always be kept there.


There is a pen holder ⇒ Fig. 117Ⓐ  and a notepad holder ⇒ Fig. 117Ⓑ  in the glove compartment.

Cooling the glove compartment

There is an air vent ⇒ Fig. 117Ⓒ  in the back of the glove compartment. Cool air can be directed into the glove compartment if the air conditioner is on. Open or close the air vent by turning it.


An open glove compartment door can increase the risk of serious injury during sudden braking or driving maneuvers or in a crash.
  • Always keep the glove compartment closed while the vehicle is moving.


In some vehicle models, design considerations have made it necessary to have openings in the glove compartment behind the owner's manual slot, for example. Small items may fall through these openings and get behind the instrument panel. This can cause unusual noises and damage the vehicle. Never put any small objects in the glove compartment for this reason.
