armrest console lid jammed

the lock on our armrest console is jammed. We can open the top lid but not the cassette storage. Anyone got any ideas that don't involve a crowbar?

try applying downward pressure where the latch engages...there's probably items inside the storage area causing the latch to be compression stuck...maybe
