How to manually open the Tesla model 3 Glove Box

Since the Tesla glove box is operated automatically by an electric motor, you can’t simply grab a handle and pull it open if it’s stuck or malfunctioning.

To open the glove box from the Model 3’s screen, touch Controls > Glovebox to open it.

If for some reason that doesn’t work, with the passenger door open you can remove a cover and insert a tool to manually open the glove box. Check out this video for details:
