I puffed a little graphite on mine after cleaning and before reassembling. The latch piece slides much better when you do. And graphite won't get gummy over time like the original grease does.

I had that problem last summer and a shot of RadioShack Control/Contact spray, without lubricant was a quick fix. Experience has taught me that I will need to get in there and do it right. The starter switch 'quick fix' didn't work for long and I followed your video for a proper cleaning. You took all the guess work out of that. So for me, your timely video on the glove box lock is going to save me some time and end the guess work as to exactly what I would find in there, once I opened it up, and how to put put it back together, which is always my main concern. As a kid, I would take apart my wind up and battery powered toys and usually could not get them back together again...and when I say usually I mean never.
I did not see you put any form of lube on the parts. Squeazel mentioned using graphite which seems about right to me. I'll probably do that too. Thanks a million for your inspirational DIY Videos. I always check out your video for a specific thing, even when I am very familiar with the procedure. I found myself being reminded of a step or two more than once. Thank You Mitch
