Has anyone had to deal with a stuck glove box latch? Mine keeps getting jammed up to the point where im afraid it will snap. Right now it seems completely seized to where I might have to pull off the whole door to get it off, and I've already tried spraying lube into it and locking and unlocking it

So basically can it be pull apart still closed up?
Can the latch be easily taken apart to get fixed?
Is their a replacement latch available?

Figured i'd ask before ripping into it and screwing up.

The "pin" locks onto gets bent down. I had to push mine back up several times till it got to where it wouldn't jam. Lube overspray can damage the paint or woodgrain (if you care). I think the diagram is on the Eaglewiki, but it's the same as GM glovebox locks.
