From memory there is a row of t20 screws on the inside of the glove box that need to be removed to allow the box out. I think the only way is to break the handle, but as far as I can remember the lock and catch are available to order separately from vw.
You need to replace the whole glove box door. Pry the panel on the right side of the dash off, remove the t25 screw, remove the 3 t20 screws along the bottom of the glove box, and the t20 screws that you can see inside the glove box. This will loosen it enough to pull the whole glove box loose. Then you need to remove the damper by prying the little plastic pin out. Then remove the bracket it secures to that has a t20 screw in it. There are 2 plastic pins in the hinges that need to be popped out, once this is done, the door will come off. Reassembly is the reverse.
If the pins are difficult to reinstall, file the new glove box door hinge holes with a round file. I usually shoot a little oil into the damper too, just to make operation easier.
did you try under the dash board,if not check the glove compartiment,the last place should be under the hood there is one more fuse box.good luck..most comon places are right by the driver side dashboard.
