So my glove box is usually a pain in the ass to begin with, whenever locking and unlocking with the key. It usually doesn't turn very well trying to lock or unlock it. So I have to wiggle it around a little and switch the key sides around until it decides to turn.
I am quite use to this inconvenience but today I put some cash in the glove box and locked it for safe keeping while around town. I come back later to get it out, so I turn the key and it unlocks fine. Go to pull the latch and I get nothing. I turn the key back to the lock position and unlock it and try again. No dice. I give it a little force and accidently pop the left side of the latch's plastic.
Since I already broke a piece of the latch I decided to tinker a little more. I popped off the square cover to the lock which allowed me to remove the rest of the handle. I been looking for places to manually open it and can only find a small paper clip like wire to push up. I been pushing it up but still catch seemed to open it.
I guess there is a possibility that I shut the box and some paper got smashed down between the connecting piece.
Anyone have any ideas?
I also need to know which way (vertical or horizontal) the key hole should be when the glove box is unlock? I don't want to try and force this thing with it being lock.
Thanks in advance for any advice I can get.
