Ger dry ice, freeze it, chip away at it! Im guessing here but that could work.

lick it...then take a picture of you doing it :lol:

I imagine a warm wet rag ought to work, only on the glove box though, not teh other stuff

the glove box is plastic right? I wouldn't think dry ice would be to great for that but I don't know never used the stuff. I would think removing the glove box would make it easier to clean and give you more options. If you screw it up you would be half way to installing a good used one. :wink: other than that maybe a hair dryer and a putty nife. make sure you dont get the plastic too hot. the heat melted the gummy bears and didn't melt the box so you shouldn't have to get it that hot i would think. If you took it out and wasn't concerned about what was in it you could try boiling water ( or very hot water).

take it out. spray a lot of clorox or some type of cleaner in it. let it sit for a little while. then scrub it out with brillow pad. that should work.

thanks for the help guys..i guess taking it out right now will be the best start.

it is only the two screws at both ends yes?....or are there any other ways of taking it out?

go and pick up some "goo gone" this shit is incredible, it removed gum that was mashed (and i mean mashed) into the back seat of my accord hatchback, i had tried freezing the gum and scraping it, that did shit all.

try some automotive spot remover... let it sit for like 30 sec to a minute and it will come off with a plastic razor blade

you should sell the melted gummy bears on ebay and tell them that they are special glove box edition w/ bonus fuzzies for free :)

isnt the glove box lined with a fuzzy type liner, not just plastic? i dont know the fabric name. at least my 3rd gen has that lining.

get a razor blade and some window cleaner takes the stuff right off, same thing with tree sap on paint and windows
