How do I determine whats bad on my glove box?

I know the glove box issue is very common on our cars, I bought mine with it not working, after all this time i couldnt take it anymore and finally got mine to open up with a bit of forceful persuasion anyways i spent like 20 minutes looking for a broken piece inside to determine what needed to be purchased and replaced with no obvious "yupp, thats the cause"

any help would be greatly appreciated.

What's the issue? BTW, the locks are not that expensive to buy from the dealer (or online parts). You could just get a new one a swap your inner lock with it and you're back in action.

thats my question, I have the typical stuck closed glovebox. I got it open. took apart the inner and outer. figured I could save a few bucks if I only needed one side or the other but I couldnt determine what side was actually bad
