If the handle is completely broken off and you can see a metal retainer the looks like a "C", just push to one side (not in). The way it works in the C shaped retailer pivots on a long rod with then moves to hooks in (left and right of latch) inside the glove box receiver for the latch.
Thanks for the advice will try that tomorrow
OK, what I meant to say is the "C" shaped clip works like a door knob. When pushed to one side it retracts the two wedged shape clips that hold it in.
