I have just bought a 2002 ford ka collection from a friend. It only has one key and the drivers door is not working. When the door is closed (unlocked) and you open it from the outside drivers door it sets of the central locking and locks the car with the only key in it.

How do I open the car without breaking a window. I know you can pull out the door and hook the handle of the passangers side door but I was wondering if there is another way.

Thanks Michael

The cheapest option may be to split the rear window and reach in. Assuming a car locksmith cannot get in of course.

If your with a breakdown recovery like the rac/aa they can normally do it think what they do it put like a small airbag behind the door and that forces the door open abit so you can put a rod in or something and open the door.

Take out the radio. and take note of the serial number then post in this thread [url="http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/topic/1599-radio-code-lock/page__st__360__p__142445__hl__radio+__fromsearch__1#entry142445"][color="#0000ff"]Click Here [/color][/url]pop the stereo back in as normal,

then stick on the kettle and wait for a reply mate.

also maybe post up here, that you have broken the window and retrieved the keys, this news may trigger someone to post an easy alternative that you should have tried instead
it's usually the way this kind of thing works.

[font="Calibri"][size="3"]Now I donít have an answer for that, should the question arise, :o [/size][/font]

[font="Calibri"][size="3"]All I can say is that thought give's me flash backs lol[/size][/font]

[font="Calibri"][size="3"]When I bought my focus last year I wanted a full size spare wheel in the boot, and to save me waiting weeks for a new order of a focus with this installed, the garage swapped the contents of my space saver wheel kit, to another donor car and gave me the full size spare kit from it, including the polystyrene spacer kit to bring the floor of the boot up level with the side wall of the spare. B) [/size][/font]

[font="Calibri"][size="3"]Around two weeks later I decided to paint the rear drum brakes on the car, went to remove the wheel and realised :angry: I had the wrong wheel lock as he had swapped the complete contents,[/size][/font]

[font="Calibri"][size="3"]I was sweating like a paedophile in a Barney costume at this point :unsure: [/size][/font]

[font="Calibri"][size="3"]As I thought my brand new car was going to be stuck with the wheels on. and how would i explain this to ford (would they listen to me)[/size][/font]

[font="Calibri"][size="3"]Luckily he hadnít sold the donor car at that stage and I got my wheel lock back. :D [/size][/font]
