The glovebox lock cylinder is one of those annoying little items that can wear out over time. The good news is that the cylinder is easily replaced in under 5 minutes. I recommend removing the glovebox from the car for better access.

Shown here is the lock cylinder for the glovebox.

Shown here is the lock cylinder for the glovebox. Over time the cylinder can wear out. Insert the key into the cylinder.

Now with the key still inserted, use a large pair of pliers against the end of the cylinder (green arrow) and the outside of the flap (yellow arrow).
