Question about 1989 Pontiac Grand Prix
I assume you know the current combination and can open it. To set the combination to a number code of your choice you must first remove the red plastic guard over the yellow tab next to the combination dials. Push the glove box release lever to the right to open the glove box. To change the combination:
1. With the glovebox open, hold the release to the right and slide the yellow tab up. This locks the release open and permits you to reset the code.
2.After resetting the code, write it down in case you forget it.
3. Slide the yellow tab down and the release will return to the closed position.
4. Close the glove box and move the dials off the code you set to lock it.
This is all from the 89 Pontiac Owners Manual. Good luck, hope it works.

SOURCE: Glove box combination lost
It can be pretty easy to do.
You'll need a bright flash light and a small flat head screw driver.
Turn on your flash light and shine it directly onto the dials, take your small screw driver and push the dial to one side or the other, usally push it to the left.
Yes, you won't have a lot of room to move it, but you should have just enough to see a line, or a groove. If you don't see a groove turn the dial to another number until you are able to see a line, or groove.
When you see a groove you are on the correct number, then do the same to the other ones, then push the button to open it up.
Example. (0)(0)(0) (0)(2)-(0) (1)-(2)-(0) (1)-(2)-(3)-

I would stop by your local locksmith shop and I am sure for 5 to 10 bucks they could get it open for you without any damage.

The only thing I can say is ask the people you bought it from. If they don't know, then the only thing you can really do is pry it open.
Thankfully when I bought mine, the guy who sold it to me knew the combination.
