Locked Glove Box

I have a 2003 Camry XLE. Today I locked the glove box, and now I can't unlock it. I've tried jiggling the key, spraying WD40 into the lock, etc. I even went to the Toyota dealership, so far no luck. Can anyone help? :confused:

WD40 is not for locks, get a non-residue cleaner and clean out the lock cylinder. Spray some graphite. Then try with the key. Make sure you are using the correct key (master, not vallet).

Thanks for your reply. I actually think my husband tried that first, but I'll make sure.

The locked glove box is now unlocked! We were finally able to see a technician at our local Toyota dealership. He took one look at the master key and said it was worn at the end. Another key (that only opens the glove box and trunk) was made for only $5.00....and it worked like a charm!

Good job. Glad to see you got it opened.
