    When I open my glovebox there is a weird looking plastic piece (looks like a round black cylinder almost like the knob off a screwdrive) its tiewrapped to the outside wall of my glovebox (on the right had side) not sure what this is. Anyone know?

    it is a shock to keep your glove box door from slamming open

    well, I doubt thats what it is because its not touching anything else but the tie-wrap.....so if thats what it is, then its probably broken

    Its probably the adapter for the 7 prong to the 4 prong trailer lights.

    I'll take a pic tonight.....doesn't look like an adapter. I think the first guy might of had it right....could be a shock that has broken off ... I'll see when I get home from work.

    Glad I'm not the only one with a dangler. I was going to bring it up to the dealer when I took it in for my next service.

    Yep, mine was like that too. It took about 2 minutes to get it lined up so I could reconnect it.

    I tried to reconnect mine but the connector towards the back will not hold it. It looks like the male clip doesn't keep enough pressure to hold it.
    :confused:

    Same here. It may be missing a pin or something that spreads that connector and keeps it in place. I may take it in before the warranty runs out and make them fix it.
