If the latch is working, than the striker (the U-shaped rod inside the glove box that engages the latch to hold the glove box closed) has been bent (probably bent up) and cannot engage the striker. Bending the striker to the correct angle will allow it to engage the latch and problem fixed. You can n=bend the striker into the correct position pressing down on it with your hand (a little at a time). If you remove the glove box door (7 screws inside the glove box) you can see where the striker needs to be positioned to engage the latch. Probably only a small adjustment is needed. See the link below for parts break down.
