Corrosion doesn't seem to be a problem; unlike some other cars I have picked up over the years. The cap is all one housing and I would destroy it to cut it off. I've tried Jewlers magnifiers on it and can't see anything that would help. (If superman was around Xray vision would help a lot). It looks like the lock cylinder needs to come out to let the lever that moves sideways to clear the back of the cylinder. The locksmith who has worked on many antique car locks can't figure it out either. Does anyone know who made the Packard glove box locks in the mid 30s maybe there may be information on other similar designs they made.

AC. Same as Chevy, except the Packard latch ring behind the nut is shallower or longer, don't recall which and it doesn't matter. I will pull out my box of glove box locks for 36 in the next day or two, I'm confident I can figure this out. stand by, DAF

The AC engineer who designed this lock must be laughing his but off in heaven now. The GM guys have the same problem. spend 5 hours trying to remove a glove box door lock. The Chevy glove box door lock come out by turning the key to the 11 o'clock position, then the lock come out and then the sliding latch pulls out. That doesn't work on a Packard lock unfortunately, but I'll keep looking.

On my '40, there's a screw on the inside of the glove box, backside of the lock, that releases it.

Thanks, I've looked and can't find any screws or set screws. I even looked under the nut.
