No way of explaining it because their are many different types of slims u can do more damage to locks rendering door inoperable some are ---designed to grab or twist onto a latch or lock rod that run inside door panel if you do it incorrectly you can damage mechanism or rip wires some are designed to be used by using a wedge to make a gap between upper door frame and then either grab latch or move lock button

SOURCE: locked my keys inside, can't find a door diagram online

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!

SOURCE: 1997 BMW 528i The passenger side front and rear doors won't

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.

How to unlock door with slim jim on a 2003 envoy.GMC


Slim jim won't reach it because of how it has to be curved to get to the latch. You have to pry out the top of the jam/window. Then reach down with a close hanger to unlock the door. Don't push against the top as it will bend. Pull the window/frame out. It will bow out some. Put your knee in the middle of the door and pull the window/frame back into place.

I need a diagram of the locking mechanism in my 2001 nissan sentra so that i can use a slim jim to unlock the passenger side door.


I don't have a diagram of the door but if you slip the slim Jim in over the top of the outside door handle it should catch on the latch bar. If you are doing this because the door won't open from the interior handle or the outside handle the problem most likely isn't the lock. The way that handle connects to the release it is held in place with a piece of plastic that breaks fairly easy. If that piece breaks the interior door handle won't activate the unlock function when pulled and you will have a heck of a time getting the door opened so you can get inside the panel to do the repair.

My wife locked our keys in our car its a 2002 how does the inside of the door look, or what do I have to do to slim jim the door open? if you got a pic of the inside of the door that would be a lot easier...


You will need two plastic wedges and a piece of stiff wire (wire coat hangars work remarkably well) or a slim jim.
Insert the wedges between the metal portion of the driver door and the window to allow easier access for the slim jim/wire.
Slide it to the location of the lock bar. Hook the lock bar and yank to the right. This should actuate the locking lever and unlock the door.

Keys are locked in car and dont want to pay for aaa. I have slim jim how do I unlock door with it?


A lot of newer cars can't be opened with a slim jim anymore. A good kit uses a small bag that inflates with air to allow a long rod to unlock (electric door locks) These work much better.
