Stuck Glove Box Lock - What Now?

I have a 1997 BMW Z3 and the glove box has recently become stuck.
The latch will lock and unlock with the ignition key but it won't open the glove box door.
It seems to be releasing on the left center side of the latch but is stuck tight on the right center side. Does anyone know how I might get the latch to release or take the glove box door off without damaging the interior trim and repair/replace the latch?
Thank you for your help.
