Call the police. They always did it for free, as practice. They use wedges to push the rubber back from the window, and then use a slim jim bar to manipulate the lock and latch rods directly.

I locked my keys in a PT Cruiser and I was wondering how to get in without breaking a window.

Call a locksmith. Yeah, it will cost you, but no broken window. Just my opinion.

Car battery flat stopping entry to car using key fob no external lock to allow access using key how can I gain entry to car.

I've never heard of a car without at least a key lock on the driver door. Unless it's a custom car, but they usually have a hidden button to push to open the doors. The only way to get in, other than calling a locksmith or breaking a window, is to use a "burglar bar", or as some call it, a "slim jim", to try and hook the opening or door lock mechanisms inside the door.

Locked my keys in car trying to get them out without calling a locksmith or breaking a window

With the title, and proof of ownership go to the nearest GM dealer.
They can do a copy for less than $10. To get in your car there is no need for a chip on the key. Good luck.

Locked keys in trunk ,how do i get in my car ,without calling locksmith?I borrowed a slim jim ,but its not working.

if your entire car is locked up, then a locksmith you'll need unless you want to break a window to get in or unless you have a friend who knows how to break into cars without damaging them.....if you can get into your car then you can pull the back seats out which will reveal some slots or openings into the trunk area...which you can then use a telescoping magnet to stick through those openings to retrieve your keys.....
good luck

Need to replace ignition (87 f250) buddy lost the keys

if you call a lock smith they can make a new key even without the old one this will be just as cheap as trying to pop out the lock
