Use the Pro-Lok A0-42-LA "Long Arm Tool," a wedge starter and an inflatable wedge to unlock the front passenger door locking mechanism. Begin by inserting the wedge starter at the top corner of the front passenger door. Insert the inflatable wedge into the opening created. Remove the wedge starter. Inflate the wedge. Insert the A0-42-SL "Tool Sleeve" at the top edge of the doorframe. Carefully insert the AO-42-LA through the sleeve into the passenger compartment. Reach the tool 41" into the passenger compartment to the electric lock-unlock button that is located on the front passenger door trim panel handle assembly. Position the tip of the tool over the button and depress to unlock the door locking mechanism.
Use the Slide Lock Inverted Z-Tool and a wedge to unlock the front passenger door locking mechanism. Insert the wedge just above the front edge of the outside door handle assembly. Insert the Inverted Z-Tool one inch to the left of the vertical lock button with the tip facing forward. Lower the tool carefully into the door cavity approximately six to eight inches. Carefully rotate the tool counterclockwise until it contacts the vertical linkage rod. Manipulate the tool until the tip is wrapped around the vertical linkage rod. Bind and lift the car-opening tool to raise the vertical linkage rod unlocking the door locking mechanism.
Use the Steck Manufacturing BigEasy “Glo” and a wedge to unlock the front passenger door locking mechanism. Begin by inserting the plastic wedge or inflatable wedge into the top of the door. Insert the BigEasy tool into the passenger compartment. Manipulate the tool to position the 90-degree bend tip against the lock release button or pull out on the inside handle to open the door.
Use the Tech-Train Productions TT-1017 car-opening tool and a wedge to unlock the passenger door locking mechanism. Begin by inserting the wedge near the forward edge of the outside door handle assembly. Carefully insert the TT-1017 car-opening tool into the door cavity with the tip pointing forward. Carefully lower the tool about five inches into the door cavity. Rotate the tool counterclockwise until it contacts the vertical linkage rod. With the shaft of the car-opening tool against the weather stripping, rotate the tool until the vertical locking button moves slightly indicating contact. Once contacted, pull the tool towards the front of the vehicle to bind. Carefully raise the TT-1017 to unlock the door locking mechanism.
The direction to rotate the driver's door lock plug to the unlocked position is counterclockwise.
