if you take out the bolts that are underneath you should be able to maneuver it enough to loosen whats caught. Not sure if you able to reach up in the back very far but there are also 2 platic clips that hold the glove box up as well. I will take pics of what im talking about when i get home from work if you still need help figuring it out.

Does the latch move?
If the latch moves then something in caught where the latch goes in on the inside. If the entire assembly from the outside is not moving then just try to access it from the bottom. Let us know how it goes!
