What do you mean the lock mechanism just falls out?

If you really had to you could try sticking something in there to unlatch it (you might damage your dash)

Or since the lock is busted anyway you could try drilling it out... Then put the new one in

After the tumbler fall out you should be able to stick a small screwdriver in there and trip the finger that hold the latch. If not head to the local Chevy dealer and ask them what it looks like. All it consist of is a spring, a finger, and a push tumbler that when you push it trips the finger which is on a pivot so it drops away from the latch.

Glovebox

Just wondering if you thought about removing the three nuts from under the dashboard that secure the bottom of the glovebox door. If this can be done it might allow you to remove it or move enough to get inside to trip the latch without scratching anything.
