Salvage yard is your best bet to find the latch, and most likely the cheapest, I dought you can get one from a dealer being that old, you can also try National parts depot, or Original parts groupe, or Year one, they might have it. There might be other buicks that will interchange or other G.M. products.

you can open it by manipulating the plastic handle a bit.You will have to get a little rough with it to get it to open but it will.2 phillips screws hold it to the glove box door when you get to it.

Try pushing the lid hard and downward while operating the latch. If that doesn't work, you have the option of tearing the box out from behind, or prying the lid downwards until the latch releases. Kind of messy any way you go! If it was a problem with a keyed lock, you could get a locksmith to pick the lock for you.

Yes, it shouldn't be too hard either. However, have you tried to unlatch it? I had that happen to me. I shut an envelope in it and the latch locked. Try pulling the handle and take a screwdriver and try to move the latch back out.
I hope this helps.

Would like the solution as well. Dealer says it has to be drilled out.
Grabbing the squarish "loop" under the handle down and away using needle nose pliers doesn't unlock the door
