Default 2008 C70 - Glove Box Won't Close

Hi,
My son has a 2008 Volvo C70 and the glove box will not latch. At one point the tumbler came out and was put back in. The engagement parts (that move in when you pull the handle, and release back out when you let go) don't seem to me moving out all the way. I was looking for direction to remove the glove door, then be able to get into the mechanism to see if it can be unstuck.

Thanks
Pat

The tumbler is out. Looks like real issue is that it is acting like the handle is up, which pulls in the side bars and allows it to open. Releasing the handle should allow them to spring back out. They are stuck in the in position, even with the handle released.

Is there anyway to remove the latch/lock mechanism without having to remove the whole glove box ?

Thanks
