My Ride: '06 330 CIC ZHP
There are a few threads about this, mainly the fix is tightening the screws inside the box to prevent this from happening again. I'm don't exactly know what the solution is to get it open if locked. I recall mine locked once and I just played with the key... put the key in the lock, force it left (or right), and try to open the box with the key in at the same time it's far left or far right. Try different depths too. Barely insert the key and gently do it, and if that doesn't work, push the key in deep and then turn it. It was frustrating but eventually it unlocked. Of course, make sure you car is unlocked.
