Answers :

If you refix it with araldite that might do it but plastic goes brittle with age ,so its either a new mechanism or a little slide bolt latch from hardware shop ,this makes a good repair actually ,but first you need to open it and this is the trick bit as the mechanism works like a Z ,opening the handle thing pull both arms into the centre so its down to a bit of patience and a screwdriver to emulate the movement of the operating lever
Hi! Have you tried using a small flat tip screw driver on the broken handle of the glove box? This may help.
