Car-Opening Techniques : 2007-up Chevrolet Suburban
This month we will offer recommended car-opening techniques for the 2007-up Chevrolet Suburban. The Suburban is equipped with vertical linkage rods on the front and rear doors. The front and rear doors are equipped with vertical locking buttons. Note: The car opening methods will also unlock the 2007-up Avalanche, Escalade, Tahoe, Yukon and full sized pickups.
The following opening methods can be used to unlock the 2007-up Chevrolet Suburban:
Use the High Tech Tools Double Tool 26 and a wedge to unlock the front passenger door locking mechanism. Insert the wedge forward of the outside door handle assembly. Insert the #26 car-opening tool into the door cavity with the tip facing rearward. Lower the tool until the tip is beneath the vertical locking button. Manipulate the tool until the tip lines up with the bottom of the vertical locking button. Gently pull up on the tool to raise the vertical locking button to unlock the locking mechanism.
Use the Pro-Lok AO-39 Double Slide Tool, an inspection light and an inflatable wedge to unlock the rear passenger door locking mechanism. Begin by inserting the inflatable wedge eight inches from the rear edge of the rear passenger door window. Inflate the wedge according to manufacturer’s instructions. Insert the inspection light into the door cavity six inches from the rear edge of the window glass and identify the vertical linkage rod beneath the manual lock/unlock button. Insert the long end of the AO-39 into the door cavity, three inches from the rear edge of the window glass with the tip facing rearward. Lower the AO-39 nine inches. Rotate the tool 45 degrees clockwise and lift the tool one inch to position the tip of the tool under the bend of the vertical linkage rod. Lift the car-opening tool to raise the linkage rod to unlock the door locking mechanism. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for warnings and removal of the tool.
