My bet is that the pot-metal
thingie (please pardon the use of technical terms) connected
to the handle that pushes the lever that retracts the two
'claws' that constitute the latch, has broken.
Presuming that this is the case, my solution is to gently
pry down the top of the glove box, exposing several Phillips
screws, which you can remove. Two of these secure the plate
the 'claws' latch into, and with those removed, there will be
enough flex to pull down the glove box and latch plate, and
use a long (14"ish) screwdriver or rod, depress the right
hand one that will be exposed by this manuver. Viola!
With the glove box open, you can remove the latch with two
additional screws and carry it into your local deal to secure
a replacement. They may say they dont do them anymore so
you will have to try a breakers
