Car keys locked in car

Recommended Posts

I have a friend who owns a Peugeot 306 and the idiot has managed to lock his keys in the car.

 

The car has central locking and he has no spare set of keys.

 

Anyone on this forum got any ideas of how to solve this puzzle without having to smash a window?!

Is he a member of the AA? Does he know any ermmmm dodgy characters who may be able to manipulate the lock??

Ring a Peugeot dealer and ask them for any tricks- if they don't have any good ideas you can use the same call to order new window glass for when you have to smash it.

Unfortunately not a member of the AA and no dodgy characters available for help. We know someone who can pick locks, but modern car electronics unfortunately have him beaten!

You don't wanna pick a car door lock - the usual way through them (apparently) is to use a slimjim to manipulate the doorlock - check your PM inbox :D

If you hang around for a short while some car thief will happen along and give you a hand. Is car crime the biggest crime?

I really hope your friend gets this sorted out. Its so annoying when you have to pay out for something like that. Good luck, really feel for your friend! KEEP US INFORMED. X

Which area does your friend live 4bes, and possibly one of the forum members who is a member of either the AA or RAC can call them out for him. ;)

All got sorted, looked at the various options and smashing the window seemed like the most obvious one. Was painful though having to smash into your own car!

I did this once in York in December 1988.

 

I'd parked up but got out to take some Christmas presents into my then g/f's house. Silly me had left the keys in the car with the radio still on (which was Mike Read's Round Table where they used to review new singles) and taken some of the presents.

 

When I returned for the rest (gosh, I was so more generous when I was skint!) I couldn't get in.

 

What to do? I phoned up a local Leyland garage who managed to get a mechanic out with a spare universal key for my old Mondeo. £20 in 1988: That was a good night out then!
