Take a peice of cardboard and push it down through the molding and push to unlock button. (Worked on my mom's GPGT.)

Cant you cut a tennis ball open and put it up to the lock, and the air pressure from pushing on it unlocks it? Google it or something. Good luck.

I'll try the cardboard see how that goes... since im at work i might have to resort to using a coat hanger... and the tennis ball trick only works on some locks i did review that but more often then not it wont work

but also, cant i use a screw driver cause i have a hole under by door handle i just don't know what to do with it

Don't know about the screw driver but you should be able to get it with the coat hanger

slip a $20 on the front seat, catch the bastard and get your insurance to replace the window.

My mom's b/f works for a tow company and when people lock their keys out they'll call the cops, who call the company to open it up. They have all the tools needed to get it open. Not sure if they have that around you but it's worth a try I suppose.

Is there a fee for this and if so would it just be cheaper to call like CAA

For a GA the easiest way to get in is wedge the door and use a long anything to push the unlock button... like the antenna

thanks all for the help

i think I'm gonna try hepy117 and iceman way seems thats the only way I'm gonna possibly get it open(stuck at work)

so let me make sure i understand it right, I can take the coat hanger and slip it through the door while say my buddy wedges the door open right?

I dunno if a coat hanger is stiff enough.. any sort of metal rod that you can push the button with.

I have a set of slimjims/wedges/etc... so i have these wedges that won't hurt the door. but in a jam you can use like, the rubberized end of a pair of pliers for instance to wedge the door without hurting it. you just have to do it enough to get your long item in there

if i take a knife and try to pry down the window by the door... Will that work or just cause more problems

I wouldn't use anything sharp.. your weatherstripping would be owned

Try to get something to wedge it open like a pen with a rubber gripper on it or scissors so it doesn't hurt the paint of anything and try the coat hanger.

Now make a spare key and tuck it in your wallet.
