1996 993 glove box door will not open

My glove box door will not open. The lock to the glove box is unlocked. When I turn the knob all the way to the right the door latching mechanism will not release from the "U" latching bracket. I have tried to wiggle the door slightly left to right and have even taken the lower hinge 3 phillips head screws out to release the door hinge in hopes that would provide enough relief on the latching mechanism that the door would come off. That did not work. So I'm looking for advice on how I can get it to unlatch without causing any damage to the door or latching mechaism. I believe if I understood how or what latches around the "U" bracket I could probably unlatch it. Thanks!
