Default Center console keeps popping open?

Anyone have problem with the center console glove box won't close? it keeps popping up when i close it or hit a bump.

Anyone here know if there is a way to fix it? or the warranty will cover it.
Thanks in advance!

Same thing started happening to me a few days ago. Its pops open almost everytime I close it but sometimes it'll stay closed for a bit.

Mine would rattle whenever I hit a bump - I solved it by taking some foam weatherstrip tape and puting down a strip between the lid and the center console. The pressure there should keep the locking mechanism tighter together

Those small black squares are foam tape pieces

If you took your car into the dealer for this problem, thats probably exactly what they would do.

i had the same problem on my wrx, i found the problem to be the latch on the lid not catching on the notch on the console. i ended up adjusting the latch and lid by just pressing and pushing them so it would fit better. not sure if that makes sense but it worked, i guess the lid just got misaligned.

I have to try this. I tried playing with the latch and no luck. Maybe playing with the lid will work?
