The outer glovebox latch is pn 51167020044 available for $88.56 at www.thebmwpartstore.com. The inner glovebox latch is pn 51168262566 at $45.43 from the same source.

The inner latch is the handle you pull, which is counter intuitive to me, but I'm left handed. Perhaps inner means closest to the center of the car.
