With the door Netz out of the way, I was on a roll and ready to tackle another install. I opened the Glove Box & Dash Netz box to see what was needed for this install. The glove box Netz also came with directions and required some duct tape (not a problem, there is always a roll in the storage box in the back of the TJ) and a phillips screwdriver.
Remove the glove box from the dash. With a phillips screwdriver, remove the 8 screws (4 per side) that holds the plastic box to the glove box door. A very thin "hinge" attaches the plastic box to the rest of the box across the bottom of the box. The instructions say to cut this hinge with a sharp knife, but mine simply cracked off when I flexed it a couple of times.
The Netz for the glove box is stretchy on one side (uses elastic on one of the straps). Place the elastic side down and place the glove box door on top of it with the bottom of the door aligned with the closed end of the Netz.
Fold the four straps around the edges of the door and secure them in place with some duct tape. Each strap will overlay a screw hole. Take your time....I stretched and pulled (you want the straps to be tight) and rearranged it a couple of times before I was satisfied with the position. Now take the plastic box and put it back in position. I inserted the four screws that did not have to go through a strap. Since I still had that 3/32" bit in the cordless drill, I carefully drilled the other four holes, making a small holes in the tape and strap. The remaining four screws were replaced and all were tightened.
With a box knife, I trimmed away the excess tape. Don't cut the straps.
Put the glove box back into the dash. Your glove box Netz
is ready for use. Easy to install and makes for a handy place for your
passenger to toss their "junk" when they hit the trail with you for the day.
The other Netz that came in the box is for placement over the top of the center
tray on top of the dash. As my Panasonic Toughbook notebook PC is mounted there, I was not able
to install it
