I just realised my jack is in the car... So I'm not going to have much luck taking the tyre off anytime soon. I've been trying to wedge open the door and put a coat hanger through. So far I've had some luck getting the coathanger inside the car, but twisting and getting it to the unlock door button on the driver's side is proving difficult. I'll keep at it
I get free glass replacement once per year - which I have already used within the last year when a tree branch fell through my back window I've had luck getting a coat hanger in through the top of the door and onto the Door Lock button. Pressing it doesn't unlock the doors though I've taken a break and put on some sunscream and will try again in a bit! I'm going to try and open the lock on the door handle next.
My central locking stopped locking my driver door for some reason a year ago, so I've only been using the key to lock the car.I'm still trying - just come inside for another break. My plan of attack so far is to come in from the edge of the driver's window with my coathanger and try and pull the lock towards me. I've had some luck, I've got the lock about 25% turned and nearly unlocked the door. Bloody hell after all this effort and the damage I've done to the rubber weatherproofing on the door I should have just called a locksmith or a mechanic!
jolly well done
I should have seen this coming! Now my driver's side window won't go up on its own anymore. I think it's out of alignment, as it will still move up and down so long as I guide the window into it's correct place! I'll try and get a video of it. I'll just refrain from using the window now I'm guessing that wedging open the door has caused a small amount of debris to fall into the electric door mechanism and maybe stuff something up. I'll have to take it apart to look. What a disaster this is proving to be.I managed to find my other key after all this. The dog had it the whole time and dropped it at my feet a few hours ago...
