Try advertise in ~ above the center of the top edge when you are pulling the release. The capture bar is adjustible and my be a bit loose causing it come drop under a bit farther 보다 normal. Pushin in may allow the hook to clear it anyway. Good luck.Just another thought would be to remove the hinge screws and see if the door just drops off.

The hinge of the gloves box is hosted onto the dash frame with three screws. It takes a 7mm socket to eliminate them. If you remove the screws, the may enable you to placed a small pressure ~ above the handle/latch while moving the box roughly in the hole........ The may enable you to gain it to release without break anything.Good luck,Mike
