Dashboard Storage Box - stuck

Hi all.

I'm sorry, I've tried searching without much success so please forgive me if this has been repeatedly asked.

I had my old MINI for 10 months with no issues with this storage box…had this one 4 days and I've already got the dashboard storage box stuck!

My niece has shut it on an iPhone cable. The cable is not visible on the outside but must have trapped in the spring mechanism somehow. When I push on it, nothing happens.

I daren't pull at it, as I don't want to break it. Happened to anyone else? Any tips for getting it open that don't involve yanking at it and hoping it doesn't break?

I'd rather leave it stuck shut forever than do that, but I do love the "secret compartment". Handy for hiding things in that I don't want to share!

I have the same problem with my R55 '11. Did anyone solve this problem for you?
