Glovebox lockout

My glovebox has an attitude. This is the compartment perfect for a pair of sunglasses (or the crappy analog phone that's in there now) above the a/c vents on the dash of R129s and W220s. Some earlier posts say there's a tool to pull the phone module out? Where can I get it? - I am really tempted to just crush it with a hammer - but probably not the best idea. Beyond that, however, whenever I lock my doors with the key from outside, and I return and unlock my doors, that glovebox remains locked - as if I had used the key to put it in that permanent lock position, even though it's not. It can only be unlocked again with the key. It's very frustrating. I understand that it locks when I lock the car, however, all the other compartments unlock when I unlock the car. It's in the correct position, etc. - but I have to unlock it with the key, and can then I can use it for the period until I lock my doors again when I leave my car. And then, when I return, you guessed it, I have to use the key again to open it. Sounds confusing but it's not. Just annoying. Any ideas??

Does it run off the vacuum like the rest of the locks? If so, you could have a leak.. worth checking
