Use the Slide Lock AutoBuster III car-opening tool. The AutoBuster III car opening tool requires two wedges forward and rearward of the inside lock-unlock assembly, having an opening large enough for the AutoBuster III tool to enter. Insert the AutoBuster III tool into the door cavity with the loop pointing to the rear of the vehicle. Lower the tool until the bend is beneath the bottom of the window. Remove the wedges. Rotate the tool until the bend is on the passenger side of the window. Carefully raise the tool until the tip is visible within the passenger compartment. Manipulate the tool until the tip is over the power door lock control. The power door lock control is on the diagonal portion of the armrest. Push down on the lower edge of the rocker to unlock the door locking mechanism. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for warnings and removal of the tool.
Use the Tech-Train Productions TT-1025 car-opening tool and a wedge to unlock the front passenger door locking mechanism. Begin by inserting the wedge as far forward as possible. Carefully insert the TT-1025 tool into the opening behind the wedge with the upper bend facing forward. Lower the tool until the upper bend is beneath the bottom of the window glass. Carefully manipulate the tool until the upper bend moves up along the inside of the window glass. As soon as the upper bend is visible, remove the wedge. Slowly and carefully, raise the tool until the tip is in the passenger compartment, free of the weather stripping. Position the tip of the tool over the power door lock control. The power door lock control is on the upper portion of the armrest. Push down on the rear edge of the rocker to unlock the door locking mechanism. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for warnings and removal of the tool.
