2012 E90 glove box was stuck closed,,,,was only able to open the glove box with the key,,,,what happens the lock actuator For the glove box gets jammed,,,,sometimes you can release the actuator and it will start working again. This is the lock actuator removed,,,,you can see the knee airbag inside the glove box,,,,that other piece you see is the lower locking mechanism which has a micro switch on it. This is what it looks like under that piece I removed,,,,,you can see little electric motor with a gear and locking rods for the glove box,,,,sometimes the rods get jammed. Here’s a better picture of the gear,,,,on this car I replaced the whole lock actuator,,,,this job is real easy to perform.
