:} at you guys.

I'm sorted now :woot: had a local locksmith come out and he got door unlocked in 5 seconds with his multi-key thingy..lol.

Cost me £40 which wasn't too bad in my opinion.

Just been to their premises and had a couple of basic keys cut, he also gave me the key code number for future reference.

Cheers again to you all for your help and advice............ And some good laughs to keep me smiling too ;)

Keep up the good work :driving:

Lol... Ta muchly mate.

Wasn't sure how the battery bit would work, I've always been told when connecting/disconnecting battery to make sure the keys are out of the car as they can sometimes 'LOCK' themselves....

Still, ended up being a £40 fix which is a bit of a touch considering next cheapest option was a broken window, a £60 insurance excess and then no idea how long for a replacement, or a trip to the scrappers for a side glass and then aggro of fitting it in.

What part of that is unrealistic? That is the simplest/cheapest solution possible. - Ofcourse axal stands would be better as towing a car with the handbrake on can be done but not ideal but wouldnt be too much of a problem if the kerb was close to his house. Two jacks and an improvised axal stand would be another option to get under the car safely.

Also there is guys to call for this kind of thing. I did that to our old vauxhall calvalir outside a rover showroom lol and the guy came out with a coat hanger and had the car open in 20 seconds flat

But the battery idea is tried and tested and would probably be easier/cheaper.



hi there

that won't work on a deadlocked car. you need power to de-activate the deadlocks. there is a way, but it's not for a public forum.

as the op has said, he needs a new windscreen, so it would be easier to get in that way for the keys.

I cant believe some of the comments on here. Some of you lot are completly off you trolley's
CALL A BLOODY LOCKSMITH, I would charge you £45 +vat and there would be NO DAMAGE but unfortunatly the Roman/first capital of england is just a tad out of my area.
Good luck, dont be smashing any windows.

Ps Even after this, most wont go and get a spare key.
