I snapped my latch on mine so i'm replacing the whole thing w/ a 20th ae black one.

I got my keyhole out of my latch since it was broken, it was easy.

How do i get the 1 out of the new box since the guy left his keyhole in?

no need to replace the small lock. just put your key in the hole and turn it slowly. I think all glove boxes use a universal lock.

You must be kidding! I hope you know better.

How would the glovebox be "secure" if anyone with a VW key could open it? What would be the point of the valet key system?

Dude, i just found that out recently when i replaced my old glove box. The one i got from the yard came with a lock from a different car, I put my key, turned it and kind of force it a little bit and it worked. Now i'm able to lock and unlock the new glove box with my key.
