The latch of the glove compartment broke. Can't open the compartment

If you look under glove box you will see two to four screws that hold the glove box on. Take out the screws and the glove box will drop down and you can get inside and release latch..then you can get a replacement latch and replace.

Kids locked my glove box and I just bought the car yesterday what is the default combination or a way to get in the glove box without breaking it

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.

Toyota 2000 Avalon trunk lock problem I think I accidentally lost a spring in the lock mechanism when I tied a Xmas tree in the trunk with a hooked bungy cord. Now the truck will stay closed. Does anyone...

You trunk switch in the glove box may be turned off. It is located on the left hand side inside the glove box. Be sure that it is turned on and then attempt to pen the trunk. Don't give up after one try. I have a 2006 and it has taken a couple of cycles of the off/on switch and the electronic key to open it.If this does not work, you probably have damage and may have to take the vehicle to a shop and ask about having the trunk opened and either order the new parts for an electronic lock or have a keyed lock installed, once the trunk has been opened manually at the shop.

A pair of pliers a piece of cloth and a good dose of WD40

Wrap the cloth around the key after sending a jet of WD40 into the lock opening grip the key with the pliers using the cloth to stop it getting damaged and gently push and pull on the key.

If this does not free it rock the key from side to side and pull at the same time

Failing that it is down to brute force and a trip to the dealer for a new lock
