I have the opposite problem I can’t keep it closed, drive around and it pops open all the time. Not much to adjust might have to start bending stuff but would be still nice to be able to open it later as well.
Typically your trunk key fits the glove box unless one or both have been changed. A worn key might also give you a problem. If you have a fresh trunk key made it may or may not unlock the box. Otherwise, as mentioned, locksmith. Don't jack up your dash trying to seduce the lock.
The original trunk/door key doesn't fit my glovebox, nor does it work in either door.
I replaced the trunk lock so I now have separate keys for that.
No loss in getting a fresh key for the glovebox if needed.
