Default Interior Plastic and Glue

Hey folks...

I'm wanting to mod (read: fix) some things in my car that need upgrading and strengthening (read: they've broken and I want to revamp their strength so I don't break them again)...

My question is, what on earth plastic is used in the interior, and how in the world do we work with it?!

I've tried every glue that seems strong on things such as miniscule cracks, and nothing seems to work.

My glove box is loose on the center console-end, because something happened, and the clips that retain it into the little hole at the center console broke, so now it has only a nubby hinge, and feels quite loose.

Does anyone know of a glue I could use to work with these parts? or do I need to disassemble everything and somehow replace the hinge piece with a metal bolt-like object? I'm leaning towards that method simply because it would be stronger than the plastic would be, but if I could find an acceptable glue solution, that would be a great deal easier.
