Broken glove box latch

Brand new to the forums, and to Mercedes in general, so please don't flame me too hard if this is a redundant topic/question. I will be recieving a 2002 230 Kompressor next week, and I am told that the latch to the glove box door is broken. My question is what is the best way to get the door open? Ive never seen the other side of the door/latch, so I am not familiar with how it works. Is there a tool, "screwdriver maybe" that will help me accomplish this task while committing as little damage as possible, and where on the door is the right place to try to manually open the box? Any help is appriciated.

Glove box lock

I have the same problem with my C220 - I was in a hurry and managed to pull off the latch that opens the glove box - however you can still open the glove box by pulling forward a small plastic lever that you will find behind where the latch sat - don't try and pry the glove box open until you've tried this.
