    I opened my glovebox today and on the side closest to the door was a black cylinder like object with a grey cap attached to the glovebox. What is it???

    does your glovebox slam open or gently close?

    If it slams open, then you need to reconnect the damper to your dash.

    It maybe the shock, so the glovebox doesn't just fall when opened.

    if it wasn't pressed on all the way, it can pretty easily pop off.

    I have the same problem. I am going to try to slide a plastic sleeve (ink pen barrell) over the bent nub, then drill through it as Siverback did. If possible, I want to use a stainless machine bolt so I can reinforce both ends with washers and put a nut on the back side of the plastic panel that the nub is attached to. If successful, I'll take pics. I am thinking it might be a little more permanent and sturdy solution. I may also epoxy a larger washer onto the back side of the flat panel the nub is attached to for better support. This entire set up is FUBAR 200%. Toyota did a great job designing this truck, but certainly failed here. Does anyone know if they fixed this in the 20007-2009 models? Just got through installing a Peripheral iPod interface adapter. I also removed the panel that both right and left center air vents are attached to....a bit more tricky, but done sucessfully. I keep my ipod in the tray to the lower right of the steering column.
