Answers :

If you hang upside down and look up under the glove box there may be access to reach up behind the door, small hands may be a help here, but comprehension on removeing what may be jammed is a different story.

I have an 02 Deville DTS and the glove box won't open. My son closed it and I am not sure but he may have left the disc changer door open. I don't have it full of papers or anything it is pretty much emplty so I am not sure that paper is jamming the latch, but we have tried to open it with the lock in both posistions and it makes no difference.

The key still locks the lock, but the "pins" that come out from each side of the glove box door don't come out any more to hold the door shut, whether the lock is locked or not. I took the box out except for the middle screw that requires the disassembly of the dashboard. I believe I can remove the door from the box but then what? the lock seems to be sealed in the door. Please advise. Proceed to take off door and try to buy new lock if necessary from dealer.
