Actually, it's no more broken than it ever was. What I broke was the stupid little plastic tab that makes up the dashboard half of the left hinge. As if the glove box in these things isn't retarded enough already in that you have to be a Shaolin Monk to even get the POS to close on the first try, and the cabin filter drawer doesn't line up with the slot to get it out so you have to take half the car apart to get at it, they also have a little piece of fragile plastic the size of a big mouse turd supporting it. And of course, said mouse turd is part of the piece of the dash that you have to pull half the interior apart to get out.
Apparently, Subaru REALLY didn't want their customers doing ANYTHING themselves. I just spent a half hour cussing, disgustedly disassembling and frustratedly giving up on changing the cabin filter and not only failed to do what I set out to do, but made it so that the already special needs glove box is falling out of the dash. Now that I'm through ranting about it, does anyone know what the part is that I need to replace to fix this? I don't even know where to begin to look for whatever it is, never mind try to explain to a parts guy what I need.
