Glove Box Door Adjustment?

Every time I try to open my glove box I get frustrated. The door does not pop
open when I press the lock button. I have to press the button and pry the door open with another finger. I Know there is a small spring on the hinge that is there for some reason but can't figure it out. Is there some type of adjustment needed on the lock or the door itself ? If anyone has solved this problem please let me know how. I am currently refurbishing the entire dash but feel like putting a 9mm to it.

There is a spring in the hinge pin at the bottom of the Glove Box door, yours maybe broken, or weak......common on 66 and 67. Eric
