    This is the little one between the seats on the back wall. It has a key hole, but the ignition key does not fit or open it. I don't have any other keys, and the previous owner said he never got it open either. Pressing on the button with the key hole does nothing...

    Robbie--any guidance on the type of key (style, number, or letter code stamped on key) that I can give my locksmith as I'm missing the key as well. Thanks.

    Ok I give.
    where exactly is this glove box? The only thing between my seats is the buldging cover that conceals the power top's hydraulics.

    I thought this was a joke thread when I first reat it.

    thanks

    Yep, the glove box is locked if you can push the button in and nothing happens. The key itself is half the size of your ignition key. I am thinking back about 4 years now when I had a duplicate key made and I thought they used a Fiat blank but looking at the key now it has stamped on it "Armstrong" and "OK8197". I would look at my other glove box key (maybe that is the Fiat blank) to try and help with some more info but it is on the key ring with the car in the shop for a service.

    Maybe the glove box was an option on the Spider which is why the other poster does not have one?
