Smash your windscreen, open the door, climb in to the boot from the back seats if possible and check, you may be able to claim your insurance for a broken window with out a big cost,
Check your policy first, there might be a small (£30) excess to pay!
Bit extreme but its an idea!

Good luck!

Yes they can open your car door in seconds. I left my keys in the ignition once & they happily came out & helped me :)

YOu cannot call AA/RAC out for first 24 hours. YOu would need to join today and call them tomorrow. :)

Set fire to the car and the fire brigade will break the windows for you :)

Leave the car in a shady neighbourhood for 10 minutes. The boot will be open when you come back. It'll be empty, but at least it will be open.

It's OK I found the keys - well that was a waste of 2 days. :thumbsup:

I locked my baby in the car once got out put button down slammed forgot about central locking the door it was an astra, she was still in the car seat I was devastated, the police came they couldnt open it then a young boy said he would do it if no one watched, and he did.
I think the fire service will do it for free

I am almost certain my wife did.

May have been slightly different though, she had let her policy run out without renewing it and phoned up and renewed it over the phone then asked them to come out and they did.

I called the AA they wanted £181 to do it. £112 for membership (basic + home start as the car was at home) plus £69 for coming out straight away on a new policy.
What a rip off.

My central locking doesn't work in the severe cold, in fact it opens then locks again. I did this once with the car running and my spare keys in my bag which were also in the car. Had the choice of waiting an hour for break down company to come out to, they were going to charge me £50 or I pay £50 to have the small quarter panel window replaced. I didn't have time to wait an hour plus that would have been an hours worth of petrol so I had to smash the window out. Not as easy as you might think to smash a window.
