C3 Aircross Glove box without light?

Post by Tuneras » Sun Apr 14, 2019 9:23 pm

On my car there is no light in the glove box. According to the technical brochure there should be a lock and it should be lighted and cooled. Instead there is a square hole inside at the the top....
Maybe the light is only for Shine (/Flair) model?
And how about the cooling?

Hi
I have checked mine and i also do not have a light in the glove box, neither do i have any cooling.
my car is RHD and the glove box is so small it would be a waste to provide these functions

In the English instruction book it says ”when so equipped, it is lit” ....

I find the glove box quite deep though.

This is entirely normal on nearly all recent right hand drive citroens, my c4 Picassos and c3s all have this mini glove box (which
will just about take a pair of gloves), although EGS equipped C4 Picassos had a larger central box. I wish they could design the LHD cars to allow a better conversion to RHD.

In Sweden prior to 1967 we drove on the left side but our cars (except buses) were LHD!
I still wonder how it had been possible to drive like that....
Maybe you should start driving on the right side, it worked in Sweden 8-)

The C5 Aircross (UK spec) is the same. When they say "glove box" they mean glove box, just enough room for one glove!
