Hi all.

Like a plum I've managed to shut my keys in the boot, this happened other night when looking for something there, and shutting boot with keys still there. The car is deadlocked as used the boot release button on remote, it's a 2001 MK III hatch by the way.
Got no spare whatsoever, went to my local fords earlier who said can't help without a key code number, which they said only the original dealer would know. I've not a clue who the original dealer was, all I know is I'm the 2nd owner and car belonged to a company in Stockport previously.
Had a problem ages ago when has an Orion, snapped key in fuel cap and AA managed to get me a new key using reg number and VIN.
Not a member of any breakdown organisations so was just wondering if anyone knows of any tips or places I can go to for help (as cheap as poss really)
I'm in Colchester so if anyone knows anywhere in this area please let me know.'
Last resort I'll have to bust a side window and get them that way.... :(

I'd be looking to break the cheapest window. Bear in mind if its dead locked, you will need to be able to get into the car to get into the boot as you wont be able to open the car from the inside.

As for your dealer, they are talking shite. Armed with reg and vin, they can tell you....

Cheers Ben, you speak as I think.... I'm just thinking of arranging a windscreen replacement as need new front screen and pile in to the boot then... :}

Yep, as you say, deadlocked means needing access, thats why I'd need to break a glass that'll allow me to get in and drop the rear seats to locate keys.

My Dad told me that they should be able to help if take logbook, reg, VIN etc... ok, its a 9 yr old car now, but most companies I know of keep a record of sales somewhere, I'm also sure with a little effort they could locate the key code number for me and cut a key, might ring another random ford dealer tomorrow to see what their response consists of.

thanks for your reply mate :)

hi sorry for ur trouble i think if u could get off a battery lead and reconnect it it'll open the car ive always dreaded this happening me even if u have to cut the leads its going to be cheaper than a window

you cant open the bonnet without damaging it anyway, as the keys are in the boot (dont do it) as it's a hatch access would not be so bad as you can break one of the rear door windows and maybe get a child to somehow get through the window and lower the rear seats to get into the boot, it's the least expensive window to repair, the front window is bigger though so would be easier to get through. As the car is deadlocked I dont think that you can to simply break the window and reach into the cabin and open it?
