We had a Locksmith come over to my friends house as he lost the keys to a Park avenue he was working on... Doors locked... The Locksmith had it opened in no time... Wasn't too funny either... In less than an hour he had a complete set of keys... I think it was $150... I think I'd rather pay the locksmith as opposed to F'in up my car...

Then again, if you know a cop that has a slim jim, give him or her a call... I have seen a few cops open doors for people...lol

AAA guy got into my car in less then 15 seconds easy. I was curious to ask him about his Alero with a magnaflow sounding exhaust and the two bottle nitrous setup when he opened his trunk to get the tool out...

He went in on the immovable glass on the rear door.

Actually, replacing the whole frame of the car is what would need to be done to replace the door sill or whatever, unless you torch it out or something, because a window can be fixed, half the sill taken out by chunks and the door not closing all the way is a lot bigger problem to me than having a window replaced.

I've jimmied into many cars, some of which landed me in juvie and on probation a few years ago, but that'* another story for a whole 'nother time. So there'* no reason to act like I haven't done this before, I just didn't know if there was some way around ruining sh*t.

I could have paid the same amount to have a spare key made from the VIN as paying someone to come jimmy it from work.

On a lighter note, I ran up over lunch hour (sick from work today shhh) and grabbed the jimmy and the wedge, came down, and said f*** it and did it myself in a few minutes. The chipping wasn't as bad as it was last time I jimmied into my other car, thankfully, so I won't be b*tching for the new 2 years.

And I'm sure with all of you, AAA, Locksmith'*, police, etc., did not have the lack of luck and not have power locks. It'* a simple task to push the power lock button, a little bit tougher to actually snag the lock and open it. Luckily it didn't take long, as I would have got frustrated and probably just grabbed the ol' hammer and got 'er done.


Thanks anyway all, glad I got it unlocked right away before a hail storm came or something and couldn't move my other car into the garage, haha. Get atcha later.

Actually I've never seen a cop or AAA use a power lock button, they simply unlock the door.

Glad you got it open.

Generally every car is the same. The linkage (that you need to hook the slimjim onto) runs between the interior door handle and wherever the key goes in the exterior lock. Go in near the exterior lock and "feel around" until the interior handle/switch starts wiggling. When that happens, you're close!

Yeah, I remember that locksmith who did my car took maybe 15 seconds to open my car w/o having to activate the power lock. I asked him if their was any car he could NOT open. He said the only car that gives him a little trouble is a Porche. It took him about 30 minutes to unlock one of those w/o any damage. When you're good....you are good!!!(I wonder what he did before he was a locksmith???!!!
