Does the glove box light go off if you leave the box door open? I want to leave it open when at the beach to discourage someone from breaking the window to see if the glove box contains anything worth stealing, but I don't want to return to a car with a dead battery.

The glove box's light doesn't go off. Removed the filter for cleaning, left the door open and after 15 min. the light was still on.
Be aware.

Thanks, robokona, I suspected the same. I will ask the dealer to remove the bulb, or is it easy to do myself?

The bulb is a easy diy, check you owners manual.

1 incandescent bulb is not going to run the battery down in a few hours at the beach.
You could change it to a led, check your owners manual, our 18 limited uses a festoon.
I changed ours to led (not canbus) which uses even less elec.
