Does anyone have a definitive answer as to what each of the 3 key positions do, and what position it will open in? For the last few weeks my glovebox has been locked and i've tried many of the tips&tricks to no avail. If i turn the key to the right, the handle will move but it doesnt feel like it is attached to anything. If the key is vertical(middle) position, the handle will not move at all. When i try to turn the key to the left there is a lot of resistance, until it pops and lets you turn it all the way left. I read that you can try the lock with the key in the cylinder. When i try this with the key turned left, it rotates back to vertical while i left the handle.
