Default glove box latch

I was opening my glove box, and unforunately the gloxe box latch broke off. I've removed the latch before, and i know how to do that, but my question is this, now that the latch is broken how do i get the glove box open to take the broken latch out??

it broke in the locked position?

Ok..in that case I would probably match up the color, have the new latch on hand

and then bust of the old latch with any non glove box marring method necessary to pull the old one apart from the front. Once out, screw new one in and pat yourself on the back for a job well done.

Dude you have so many latches. Mine broke and I had to super glue it and use a peice of wire to make it functional. I will try to steal a digi and post a pic so maybe you will feel bad for me.
