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.

If the glove box is anything like mine it is a modular piece assembled with screws.... let them break the handle.. get a replacement first from a junk dealer and have the broken part swapped out. Its like a seat belt catch in my 97 deville. The glove box in mine flopped open and the catch had broken and fell down the door of the glovebox itself. The whole door is assembled with philips screws and should be easily removed and a new latch put in.. whoever does it should not cost more than 50.00 in labor MAYBE unless you have a friend that would do it for a beer. I saw a complete glove box on ebay for 40.00 shipping ontop of that .. i saw the latch for 20.00 +shipping.

what it sounds like to me is ,a rod or linkage that attaches from the electrical solenoid to the lock mechanism has came apart, see these rods and linkage are held by thin metal and sometime plastic clips and they can brake and crack at any given time! u need to remove the door panel and sound barrier and inspect all the mechanism.when u remove the panel lift/pry the window up and dn button panel out of the arm rest and u will see a phlip screw head,this has to be removed before u try to remove the door panel, when the screw is removed,grab the door panel with one hand by the bottom and the top by the window with the other and give it a quick **** straight up, their may be a pop in fastener at the lower left hand corner of the panel, so u may have to pop it out first, then **** it up, u will see plastic fingers around the panel that set in the door to hold it in, be careful not to brake them off, now u can move the panel out of the way enough to do what needs to be done and not have to disconnect any electrical plugs,(hopfully).hope this helps,just take your time and u should have no problem, and save some $. good luck to u..

let me assume u have not checked the fuses, meaning in al places the fuses are!, try,under the hood,under the dash and behind the panel behind the rear seat in the trunk, look in your owners manual for these locations and the particular fuse u have trouble with. good luck,hope we helped!
