Ed,

Welcome to camaros.net. I have copied here for you a response to the same question a month or so ago.

"David, I went through this with my 69 (only trying to install a new lock - no key for the
old one). When the key is inserted, the brass colored tabs which stick out of the lock cylinder body are all retracted, however, there remains one tab (silver in color on my
new lock) which is not retracted by the key. That tab locks the screw on retainer in
place on the inside of the glove box door. If you depress that tab, you can then
unscrew the retainer, and the lock cylinder will come out the front side of the glove box
door. Hope this helps. DP."

Ed, the easiest wat to search for information on camaros.net would be on the INITIAL page, there is a search button on the lower left side of the page. By selecting this you can search of ALL past posts for ALL forums at the same time.

Ed,
My friend has two 69 glovebox doors and they have two different lock assemblies with slightly different removal.
So any advice you read may be a little different and may or may not apply to your particular lock.

I also need to replace my glove box lock. I do not have the key for it and the previous owner installed a new lock and locked it. I was able to get the glove box open but now need to remove a locked lock from the door.
I do not have the tabs described in the previous posting. My lock is almost all sealed and has no obvious way to remove it without damaging the box door. Any help?

I had a similar problem. Not very high tech, but I just drilled out the guts. I guess I wouldn't be much of a watchmaker.

I was able to get it out without damaging the glove box door. Once you remove the chrome bezel on the front I just used a pair of needle nose pliers to grab the outer most circle and unscrewed it. The whole lock came right out and I was even able to dig out the other half of my broken key and get a few copies made. Keys work, now I need to get the new glove box lock to match up with my trunk key. I ordered a new lock from Classic Industries that is supposed to be programmable. Guess I will find out when it comes in. Thanks for the help.
