Getting into a car

Asked by May 13, 2017 at 02:39 PM about the 2003 MINI Cooper Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a mini Cooper which someone has tried to force the
door  lock and broken. The battery is flat so I can't open it
using the fob. I've tried to  slide a wire through the window
and pull the door handle, doesn't work. Does anyone have
any ideas, other than smashing a window, of how to open a
door or the bonnet?

Use Passengers door or go through hatch back

Unfortunately neither the back hatch or passenger door have locks. They are both controlled by the main lock on the drivers door

Call a locksmith. Or grab some locksmith tools like the foam wedges and then try to manually unlock that way
