Need some help on locked glove box. Locksmith says to grind off catch and bottom part sticking down then can remove nut holding tumbler in. I have not seen replacement parts for outside, only tumbler is available. Any thoughts on this. I don't need it to lock only want it to open and close. Thanks. Bill

I have the glove box door off while doing my restore. As I said just want push button to work to open and close. Not worried about locking

I find it hard to believe your “Locksmith “ can’t pick the lock if you take the door into his shop. When I was a kid we used to pick em with a paper clip. Good luck.

I suggest looking for a locksmith that has access to the ring of keys used back then and still by ones lucky enough to have a set. One of the keys on that ring should be able open the lock without damaging any of the parts.

But, first, you might get lucky with simply soaking the lock in a penetrating oil a couple days and break loose whatever crud is gumming up the tumblers.

Find the oldest Locksmith in town with the most cluttered shop and you’ve got your man.

We do not even have one within 60+ miles.

The "local" ones are pretty good dealing with household door locksets.
