    try a coat hanger and be patient. if that fails call a locksmith. i haven't had much luck with coathangers. i've done it before but it took forever.

    break nothing. Many police departments will assist is reentering a locked vehicle. They use a air bladder that they slip between the door and frame and inflates to widen the gap. they they reach inside and unlock the door with a rod.

    IF you must break a window, break one that moves... not one that will have to be glued in place. thats to say door glass. It is much easier to replace a moving window rather than the rear corner glass, which may still not be enough to get you inside.

    Go for the Hanger. I've used a hanger many a time to get into a car. These may be harder because the lock goes sideways, all the ones I've done are the pull up and down locks so I dunno

    Take proof of ownership w/ your VIN number listed to a local GM dealer and have them cut you a new set of keys. I forget what they charge, but it isn't very much on our old style keys...

    Or once you get into the car, take that one key and go get keys cut at a hardware store for a lot cheaper

    Coat hanger to hit the power unlock button, which should be easy on a GP. If you need something more rigid, use a fixed mast antenna.

    well first off HAHA...ive done this once. and it was at a rest in Northern Indiana an hour and a half away from home(coming home from the Michigan w meet last june actually)

    i had to call a tow truck and he used a wedge on the top of the door, then stuck a long pole to move the lock to unlock. TOok him an hour to get there, but like 10 seconds to get the door unlocked. $35 later

    Get a buddy and try to wedge the door open a little bit, and then get a coat hanger or attenna. That's what Ken and I did when we locked the key's in the Cutlass.
