    if you can catch onto the lever that the bototm of the manual door lock inside rod attaches to with hook on end of coat hanger then you can pull it up, yes

    The coat hanger trick works great, if you know how to do it. You have to get it inside the door to where the linkage between the cylinder and the locking knob (or lever) is located. Once you find that, then you just have to get the end of the coat hanger hooked on the linkage properly and then the lock will magically unlock for you. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    I once freaked out a guy that I worked with by unlocking his new Chevy pickup in less than 15 seconds. He came in complaining that he had locked his keys in the truck, so I volunteered to help him get them out. Since I had plenty of practice on my own Chevy truck, I knew exactly where the linkage ran and how to get it to unlock the door. He simply couldn't believe how easy it was to get inside! I then told him that I was an amatuer when compared to a prefessional car theif. They can open a locked door so fast that you can hardly tell when they did it. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    so many options
    so little time
    Sad to say
    these things are so easy to get into
    1. call AAA
    2. as noted knife or drill out lock cylinder
    3. HERES A new 1
    If you have electric rear window
    go to the back and unplug the electric connector thzat feeds power to the window then just hook up a set of jumper cables to a spare battery and and run the ground to your fram and just touch one of the outher wires wioth the red your window comes down and you open gate and crawl in
    P.S.
    Note to self make extra set of keys and join AAA :-)
    Best of luck @ ya

    Watching AAA do it once helps a lot. My mom got in teh habit of locking the keys in the 90 burb when i was little, and a week after i watched AAA slim jim it she did it agian. So i did the coat hanger thing in about 10 min, and i was only like 9 yrs old /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Make yourself a slim jim, fidn somethign to wedge back the rubber, and go at it til it works. THen you'll know in the future.....

    pry back door slightly and use a coat hanger with a loop bent in the end slip it through the small opening you made by prying door then over the lock knob and pull up

    or bend some thick wire in a z and stick it through the wing widow seal and pop the wing window open

    Take out that rivit on the wing window to avoid damageing the lock mechanism, that is what i'd do, then just re rivit or bolt it back on. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/bewarespam.gif
