My spare key broke in my drivers door......

Eventually found my key, with alarm remote to unlock it......I still haven't removed the key as yet.

heres a thought..carefully pull out the plastic strip that locks your rear window in.pull the glass out,unlock the door and then put the glass and the strip back in..its as easy as it sounds..

edit:i kinda missread that..open the door and pull the skin off,it only takes a minute to get it off,theres three screws(2 under the armrest,1 behind the power mirror switch) and the rest are just clips that pop out,pull the lock cylinder out of the door(slide the c clip off the back of the lock and detach the arm,the wise thing to do would be to replace it,but if you want to do it ghetto cheap,then start pulling the tumblers out of the top of the lock cylinder(theres 6 i think)start pulling them out from the front face of the lock,and work your way towards the back,you might only have to pull out 1 or 2 to get the lock to work again,the failed lock is usually the fault of the front tublers wearing down and not getting enough lift when you put the key in..put it back together...there ya go...hope that helps..

I had a similar problem too.. I just went in the rear window and then ground the central locking system.

Ok, i just checked and i have both side with the key. As for the next big meet, i'm not really sure...check the "Official meets" section, but we have small ones all the time...
