Loosen up the fasteners, realign and it will close. I goofed up mine once when removing for another item and it was a trick to get aligned. Can happen to any glove box if it gets a loose screw or fastener.
also take note of what is in there...it seems that as it closes there are things that can block it attached to the dash if something in your glove box sticks up, with no rhyme or reason at least in mine....I have to sometimes rearrange my contents a bit to get it to close
Lotus glove compartments are supposed to close?? Rather than a compartment, mine is more of a glove "hollowed-out tray area that collects road dust but repels intentionally-placed contents".
I'm not even sure why it's there, except that gloves certainly come in handy if you try to drive the Lotus in 15 degree weather (with the hard top on), in which case you will need gloves, a hat, a down coat, long underwear, and insulated driving boots.
