Glove Box light will not go off and my car makes random noise when cold

I just replaced my cabin air filter and I fixed my glove box light but now it won't go off.

and my glove box is coming apart.

Also when my car is cold a loud noise comes from somewhere in here or in the dash. When I leave work tonight I will record the noise.

The light is on because the indicator switch that tells your car the glovebox is closed isn't being pressed. You need to either reattach the glovebox or for a quick fix so your battery doesn't drain, pull the fuse for the light.
