wire coat hanger, straiten it out, put a small hook on one end, poke it down the window seal near the pin, be careful, wiggle it around a bit and if your lucky u will locate a rod that controlls the door lock pull it up and she's done!!! (miss spent youth) !!!!!!!!!!!!!! :twisted:

i`ve done the same :lol:
i got into the boot using a 7mm flatbladed screwdriver and a hammer,
the screwdriver i used had a hexagon at the base of the shaft so i could use a spanner to really force the lock round.
it fooked the barrel of the boot lock but i never used it anyway so i put a piece of body coloured vinyl over the key hole.

It's a cheap roundabout so it doesn't bother me in the slightest.
Also I lost my keys when I was out on my bike so It was hardly an ignorant mistake.

I agree. Fastest, cheapest and simplest option. I've done it before, but not in a Tezz. Unless you have spares, but you obviously wouldn't have put this post up if you did.. If you badly want a new barrel for your boot 70-100 max should see you out. Not ideal, but cheaper and better than breaking a window..
If in doubt, let her out!

I've never once used my key in the boot, so I'd have no problem wrecking the barrel and covering it like was mentioned
