You can use a wire hanger with a hook bent onto the end fairly easily if you slide it down the window and try to feel around to hook onto the lock mechanism. It may take a bit of patience, but I got into my 2000 with not too much trouble. Then do what I did immediately afterwards - get another key cut to keep in your wallet...

just take a towel and wrap around an ice scraper pry the top of the door with it and put a clothes hanger in the crack to push the unloc button

ok well first off do you know anyone that has a truck close to the same year if so try using there key it should work to open your door and on how to use a slim jim depends on if you have power locks or not if so it's a bit harder than if you don't but you put it between the window and the rubber seal and slip it under the door locking bar ether up and forword or back if its a manual lock and if not you haft to move the slim about 2 to 5 inches from the lock and do the same good luck

A slim Jim is a fishing expedition. What you need to do is not worry about diagrams. Realize that the locking mechanism has just a very few parts that interconnect. The key hole where you insert your key, and the lock button that go up and down (or in some cases forward and back) are mechanically connected. It's that connection your fishing for and trying to move. You need to 'fish' between the lock and the button and try and 'hook' that linkage and move it in the dirction that moves your lock button to the unlocked position. If you really need a diagram many of the car part web sites will display a diagram for car parts. I've unlocked alot of doors with the method described and have never seen a diagram for what I'm doing. Good luck!

I had the same problem on the rear door of my 1998 528i and it was the door actuator that had gone bad. I had to take the rear seat out to get the door panel off. Once I had the door panel off it was not that difficult to replace the door actuator.
