The Steck Manufacturing method uses the BigEasy “Glo” and a wedge to unlock the passenger door locking mechanism. Begin by first inserting the wedge or inflatable wedge into the top corner of the door. Once the door has been wedged out, insert the BigEasy tool into the passenger compartment. Manipulate the tool until the 90-degree bend tip contacts the passenger door electric lock-unlock button. Seat the tip of the tool at the top of the button and push gently. This allows the inside door handle to open the door. Position the tip of the tool against the electric lock-unlock button. Gently push the button to unlock the door locking mechanism. Carefully remove the tool according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
The Tech-Train Productions method uses the TT-1015 car-opening tool and two wedges to unlock the front passenger door locking mechanism. Begin by inserting two wedges about eight inches apart near the inside door handle. Carefully insert the TT-1015 into the door cavity with the hooked end facing forward. Carefully lower the tool until the bend of the tool is beneath the bottom of the window glass. Rotate the tool inboard slightly and raise the tool slowly and carefully. The moment the tool bend can be seen within the passenger compartment, stop and remove the wedges. After the wedges have been removed, raise the tool until the tip is within the passenger compartment. Manipulate the tool until the tip is just in front of the lock control rocker. Use the tip of the tool to flip the rocker to the rear and unlock the door locking mechanism. As an alternative, the tool can be used to pull the inside handle in order to open the door.
The direction to rotate the 2006- up Audi A3 driver’s door lock plug to the unlocked position is clockwise. There is no key lock on the front passenger door.
