    I thought it would be impossible to lock myself out of my car with the keys attached to a remote - UNTIL I locked the remote WITH the keys in the trunk today. Fortunately all it took was a ride home to get the spare remote -which Discount Tire generously provided.

    Not Breaking and Entering

    For next time. Carefully work a wooden block (Like a doorstop) to slighyly pry the window away from the door seal then get yourself some banding material (The kind that holds stuff to pallets) work a loop through the window and around the inside door handel and pull. The angel isn't good so you have to pull hard but it will open. (pulling the inside door handel will unlick the door)

    That won't work on an MN12. The window rides in a glass run; it can't be pryed away from the run. You might be able to wedge the door away from the roof or "B" post, but be prepared for damaged paint or weatherstriping. Honestly, you're better off to just break the door glass. Cover it with duct tape and use a spring-loaded center punch to pop the window. It will fall out in your hands without covering the car in glass shards. You can pick up a replacement for about $20 at the Pick-n-Pull. Not ideal, but better than paint damage. At any rate, the BEST plan is to spend a couple of bucks at Wal Mart for a duplicate key.

    Your right. I ment to say place the block between the door frame and the rear roof section then work in your loop of banding materal. If you do it carefully you wont damage the paint you can pull the door frame far enough with fingertips to place the block. Thats how I got in mine last time

    Man, that must have taken a delicate touch. I don't think I could pull it off without screwing something up. Usually, the more careful I try to be, the more damage I do to the most expensive part involved! : )
