Default Navigation system compartment on dash...

Just got my SX4 today. The compartment on the dash where you plug in the GPS does not seem to want to close. Is there a trick to this or a button or something. I dont want to push too hard to try and close it because I am afraid the door is going to break. It moves but I cannot get it to close.

make sure that when you close the door your finger is on the little bumps, because if you try closing the door from any other spot the door won't latch.

I just brought home a 2009 and I think I jammed the door up already on the navigation pod. Did you ever find a resolution?
Mine is currently stuck open and if I try to put it down it feels like it will snap.

Hi,
We are seeing more and more of this, you cannot push the door backward.
If you look at the bottom drivers side hinge you will see a small piece of wire sticking out and down, this wire needs to be gently moved toward the passenger side so that it will move back over the rear of the small tab as you pull the door toward you. The wire should be on the backside of the tab not the front.
If this happens too many times the tab will wear a groove and then the holder must be replaced.

I found it in the daylight and it is working now. I just have to control that massive power in my hands, I guess.

Default Stopping the GPS lid from jamming

You can stop the spring from jumping off the small tab nearest the driver from jumping. If you push the door too far forward, the spring jumps off and the lid won't close again.

With the spring "jumped off" so that it's out of the way, do either:
(a) get small needle nosed pliers and bend the last 5mm or so of the spring towards the left, at about a 45 degree angle. Don't go further, as you are effectively shortening the spring and it will jump off the top of the tab and not the side.
(b) use rubber adhesive and USB cover to add to the tab. Cut the bottom and side of one of those USB covers (soft, bendy plastic) which are on most A type USB port devices when shipped. Trim until you basically have a little "box corner" which you can then put rubber glue into and apply to the tab. It's doing two things: making the tab bigger and making the surface soft enough that the spring will form a non-slip groove.

Let the glue set overnight. Hook the spring back over the new extended tab. Presto! No more flying spring.
