The glovebox on my '85 190e will not open. The key goes in the lock just fine and turns but when I try to open it it feels like it is still locked. When I pull on the handle, the door comes down a little and you can see the light inside the glovebox shining. Unfortunately, this is as far as it will open. I think that this is because the metal piece at the top (the loop) where the lock connects is loose. Is there any way that I can get this open?

Also, is there anyway that I can remove the lock on the glovebox. For me the lock is more annoying than helpful.

You will have to jimmy it open somehow. The lock comes apart from the inside on this one.

I have seen this before. I used a 90 pick to get it open and then disassembled it from there.
