Glove box stuck

My key turns but it seems as though the locking mechanism is stripped or not tight, so it spins instead of unlocking it.

I want to get it open, but I don't want to break or destroy anything in the process.

Any ideas how to get it open when I can't unlock it??

I looked at my 89 which should be the same as yours. I don't know if it'll work but you maybe able to remove the 3 screws above the grab bar and remove that section of the dash and get to it that way. I never done it so I'm not sure it will work but it beats breaking it.
