if u have the right tool u can get into the car w/o any traces or scatches... but u might be able to pull it off with a thick hanger u have to physically go inside the car with the hanger and open lock with tool... i had to do it last year i locked my keys inside my car at school...

if that doesnt work u can alwasy use the brck method!

Break the little window thats at the rear of the car. You might be able to slim jim it, the lock mechanism isnt too complicated.

Use a coat hanger. Always work for me. Bend it into shape and get it open from the inside. hope you got a little crack in the window makes it much easier.

I'm not sure if you have power locks, but if you do then all you need is a good ol wire hanger. Get the wire to the inside of the car and use the wire to trip the lock mechanism to open the locks. I've had to do it several times before i went to have a spare made.

its possible to slim jim it. i had the same problem. but you can mess things up, like unhook the little wires that make your look work. happened to me,and was a pain in my **** to clip it back on cause very little room to work with. so be careful doing it.

Or you can possible get a hanger bend it inot once solid pieve with a 90 degree bend at end,and try to pull back on the top part of the door, pull it through top and use power lock inside i check and it should work,just you might mess up the door seal.

AND MAKE SURE YOU REALLY OWN THE CAR!

a while ago a newbie posted "how are they stealing HIDs?" and threads were getting edited and deleted left and right trying to cover it up. This guy says "anyone know how to break into it? have a diagram of how the locks work or something?" and nobody even blinked... Chris96, I'm not saying anything against you, just noticing the difference in reaction.

i used a wooden wedge on the upper part of the door.. it gave me enough roon to use a coat hanger and push the door locks open..






actually... i had to get my dad to do it.. i could not wedge the towel covered wood piece into the car.. it was just too much!!
