Every locksmith I call they say they don't deal with cars any more....
damn,,,,thats weird.....my homeboy just had all new keys made for his whole car for like 120 bucks....and thats only cuz it was fleetwood,,with special chip thing in the ignition key...

u can pop the back lock out,,its just held in with this round pin thing,,and use a screwdriver to turn that lock thing to get in,,and just buy a new lock and key from autozone for bout 10-11 bucks

If the locks have never been changed. You can pull the glove box lock out or the door and take to a looksmith. If they have pull the rear seat out and with a long rod with a flat tip on it you might be able to turn the release on the latch. If you can get past the air tank. I have used a broom handle with a flat tiped screwdriver taped to it. Good luck.

Thats how I did mine. If you cant get to it, take the door lock off. The locksmith charged me $15 to make a key from my trunk lock.

you can pop the retaining clip out from the uderside of the deck lid. it will let the lock fall out and then use a screw driver to turn the latch. the clip is held in by a rivet and should come out pretty easy

I did this by taking out the back seat, connecting a whole shitload of rachet extensions, and then removing the bolts from the trunk striker or latch (whichever is easier to get at).
If you can't get at it with just straight extensions becuase of you air tanks, try using a swivel on the end.....sounds kind of goofy but it worked for me!

well if you only got locked out of your trunk then why don't you drive your car to a lock smith and have him make you a copy instead of him coming out to you.also you can get a midget to crawl in through the back seat.just remove the tank asuming it is screwd on.if not then fuck it you don't need to get into your truck anyway.its not like you have to charge the batts or anything.hey did you look under your bed for the key? it seems like thats where everything I loose ends up.or maybe in the laundry room or a dirty pair of pants if you haven't washed them already :cool:

Holy shit...For $2 and a trip to the dealership with your title and/or registration, you'll have a copy in about 30 seconds! :uh:
