In that video I showed the glove box lock that is came with the car and said I was puzzled by the fact that experts here said there should only be two keys for a MKII, one key that works the ignition switch and the doors, then a second key that should work the trunk lock and the glove box lock.
However when I eventually discovered the original keys inside the glovebox that I “thought” was locked I found that the trunk key does not work the glove box. In fact the key blank type was completely different (one sided key for trunk lock and a two edged key for the glove box lock).
Here is a photo of the glove box lock that I removed from the glove box lid and the keys that I have for the car.
My 1964 MKII is all original and has a completely different glovebox lock. It is cylindrical in shape and is held in place by a U-shaped bracket and slotted screw.
Its original key is rectangular, and my ignition key is round.
I’ll try and post a picture of them in the next day or so.
So to open or close the glove box that has this original type of lock, you HAVE to use the key?
If that is the case then to be honest I would have to say that I definitely like this “non-original” type of latch & lock installed in this car better.
Believe my glove box lock is original as are other keys, the key is like the one you tagged as blue saying ignition, square head/Union that fits the glove box. Square head one fits my glovebox.
My ignition is round head but says Union on it for my ignition.
Not sure if this helps.
Our October '62 built MK2 has two keys. The oblong key operates the glove box and boot lid locks. The round key operates the ignition switch and door locks. As others have cited, the latch mechanism for the glove box lid is retained by thee chrome wood screws. The key opens the glove box lid.
