The USA spec LHD glovebox does NOT use nuts & bolts to install..........simply self tapping screws with a small flat washer.  There are qty 2 on either side of the "box" (door open), I think qty 2 along the bottom edge & qty 2 on the end cap.  All of them screw into a white (now yellowed) plastic "insert" that pops into a hole in the dash frame.  I just pulled one out of a dash assembly last night!  Hope that helps! 😁

Follow up on the screws that hold the glove box.  They are metric, but a 1/2" long  #6 binder head or lathe head screw will work (a little loose, but a #8 is too large).  The original ones are black oxide color.  Total of 8 needed.  Six inside the glove box, and two at the bottom.

Or just order metric black zinc pan head screws from belmetric.

You can google the conversion from the above post.

The original screw is m4.2x13, but the head diameter is 12mm.  The head diameter has to be this large to cover the large adjustment hole in the glove box panel.  So if you decide to order from Bel Metric  try this screw:

It should have a large enough head to work.
