Push down on the top of the door and look in the middle. You should be able to see where the metal latch comes out of the dash. You need to get in there with a screwdriver and start breaking small peices out of the glove box insert in the dash. Start from the metal latch and work out. You will expose the 2 screws that hold the latch in. When you have enough plastic broke you can use a philips screwdriver to remove the screws. Then the door will open. Then you will have to take the door apart to finish opening the latch. The only damage left when you are done is a little plastic broke behind the glovebox door. You don't even have to replace the insert for the glove box. You will just have to buy the door latch kit.
