Use the Slide Lock Japanese Tool™ car-opening tool and a wedge to unlock the rear passenger door locking mechanism. Insert the wedge forward of the outside door handle at a distance that will accommodate the car-opening tool. Carefully insert the Japanese Tool into the door cavity with the tip pointing forward. Lower the tool until the tip is beneath the bottom of the window glass and rotate slightly counterclockwise until the tip is on the passenger compartment side of the glass. Remove the wedge. Carefully work the tool until the tip slides up into the passenger compartment. Manipulate the car-opening tool until the tip is against the vertical locking button. Carefully lift the car opening tool to raise the vertical locking button and unlock the door locking mechanism.
Note: Using this method may mar the locking button.
Use the Steck Manufacturing BigEasy “Glo” and a wedge to unlock the passenger door locking mechanism. Begin by 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 to position the ninety degree bend tip behind the inside door handle. Pull on the tool to unlock the door locking mechanism. Pull on the handle a second time to open the door.
Use the Tech-Train Productions Plastic Strip car-opening tool to unlock the front passenger door locking mechanism. Lubricate the weather strip between the front and rear passenger windows. Begin by using a plastic shim to create the opening and to move the weather strip out of the way. Once an opening has been created, insert a wedge or small Jiffy Jak Lever to gain access at the upper vertical edge of the front window glass. If using a wedge, use a sawing motion to lower the wedge as far down as possible. Slide the Plastic Strip Tool into the opening. Loop the closed end of the tool over the vertical locking button. Tighten the loop and carefully lift the car-opening tool to unlock the door locking mechanism.
The direction to rotate the driver’s door lock plug to the unlocked position is counter clockwise.
