, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long response.
The cable that attaches to the release lever has either broken or popped loose.
When this happens this is not a easy fix without causing damage to the glove compartment door. You will need to go under the dash and try to come up from behind the door to gain access to the lever, if you haven't done this repair i would suggest having this done at a repair shop.
