keys locked in the boot

Postby jfatboy » Sun Jul 28, 2013 5:39 pm

as above, ive pm'd as many people as I can see who have been involved in past conversations,

keys are in the boot, car Is locked, windows up. tried pushing the unlock button with a coat hanger and pull the actual lock tab on the door.

have heard there is another way.

Drill up underneath car below lever to open booth and use welding rod to push lever open. No need to go breaking windows and that crack

had to do it last week on a car. no wires in the way up there. the closest wire would be about 2 inches away so of course without having to say you would measure up propperly twice before drilling. you would also set the depth gauge on the drill as to only drill a few mm each time rather than drilling through the whole lot in one go

yea the pm i got doesnt involve drilling or any kind of damage, try and be patient and wait for a pm off someone thats done it before because its pretty easy.
