locked out, only trunk can be opened
Hello everybody, I do need your help.

My remote control won't work any more :( Though, it can sometimes turn on the room lights. The door lock is already broken!
The only thing I can open is the trunk. Is there anyway I can get into my car without breaking anything?

P.S> the car is an e46 3 series 03

I had a friend of mine's young daughter climb through the ski pass in the trunk to unlock the doors.

If you don't have a ski pass you can make one pretty easily.

If you have a coupe, you can pry out the window enough to get some hook on the door handle and pull it open.

I don't know if you can fold down seats from the trunk if you do have split, folding seats.

Making a skipass isn't a big deal...search for it.

Yeah.. open the trunk, pop the rear seats down, climb in..

Note on the door handle being pulled.

You likely will have to push the center locking button before you actually try to pull the door handle to open the door.

Time to get a new keyfob and repair your driver door lock linkage.

Check ebay as you can get the replacement door lock linkage for around $25 US.
