URGENT Need Help

Hey guys, so my mustang been sitting for a bit because the door lock on the driver side hasnt been working and makes getting in and out difficult. So today I went to move the car so I can work on it this weekend and guess what, Dead. And as you know there is no key slot on the passenger side to open the door. So I am looking for a way into the car or a way to get a jump on it with out opening the hood. So let me know some ideas please id hate to have to call someone.

Does passenger side door lock not work when you hit the button? You can always try to pop the lock, but it's near impossible if you have the stick black door pins.

Take the weather stripping off the door and stick a metal coat hanger through there to try and pop the lock.

You have to get a metal coat hanger or a straight wire. Make the hanger into a straight line and make one end a hook. Stick it into the door and try to find the hook into the lock

It may be better if you get a little thicker wire than a coat hanger iv had to do this quite a few time in my jeep

^Just stating he could try to fish a wire through, and try to pop the lock pin up. Trunk would probably be the best idea, in hindsight. But being 6'5 i wouldn't have come up with that as an option.

I don't think you can fold the seats down from inside the trunk though. The little handles are on the inside. Unless you have no backseats like me then yeah you can go through your trunk. Sadly I've had to do it. I left my keys in the ignition with the music on while working on my rear speakers. Good thing my trunk was open. I had to crawl through my strut tower brace and my harness bar. Mind you I'm 5'8 225 pounds lol

They'll come unlatched if you hold your tongue right. I've used that route before.

You'd probably be better calling out a pop a lock place to open your car up for you. If you don't know what you are doing you'll just frustrate yourself trying to use a coat hanger.

I locked my keys in my car on about 3-4 occasions. I you tubed it, found out how the mechanisms works and did it in a couple of minutes. Not too hard. I won't pay someone $40 for a mistake I can fix myself. Now if it was a different car it would be a different situation

Call a locksmith. It's worth the $40-$60 dollars and if he screws it up, he has to pay for it. Jump it and leave one door unlocked. Passenger side as most thieves will try the drivers door to get into your car.

I locked my girls keys in her sixxer yesterday while it was running...

Took a yard stick, put it in the window to pry it back a little. Took a metal coat hanger.. Caught it on the door lock thing inside the black pillar thing, pulled really hard toward me so it didn't slide off and then pulled up.. And boon I was in about 38 seconds

Just an update. Had a friend over today. We looked at it and was able to get through the trunk with some finess.
