Does anyone have any tips for opening or removing a locked glovebox?
I tried unlocking it one day and the key would not turn in either direction. It went into the lock fine.
What is the best way to unlock? I don’t care if the lock works, just want to be able to open and close.

thanks

Don't use the glovebox much eh? How long has it been like this? Did you try some silicone spray or WD 40 in the lock, also make sure there isn't any tension on the lever, push it back in and turn to turn the key.

It's been broke about 8 months. I closed it and locked it, then shortly thereafter could not get it open. I have documents inside I need for inspection. I did try some graphite but no luck. I will try holding the lever to make sure there is no tension. Any other techniques to unlatch?

Thanks.
