Banging from rear possibly drop links they can make a racket when they go, best to jack it up and support it then use a big bar to find the source.
Drivers seat sounds like a seized height adjuster, easy enough to change but not cheap, although they do share the part with VW so if you can find a Golf or Transporter in a scrap yard you can get one off those, just take your with you to compare it (the VW one has a different sized star wheel but it is just a push on piece that can be swapped)
Glovebox, sure you can get to the catch with a small screwdriver to open it through one of the small holes that are now on show, if not will be a case of replacing the whole door to get in
