Question about 1998 Chevrolet Camaro
Some cars have bars in the doors that prevent a slim jim from reaching any part of the lock, without the book, you are just guessing, locksmiths have the books, also. if you have AAA, They can send out a guy to do it, I had a guy come not too long a go with a big giant metal rod and I said, you're not going to stick that in my car!!! He said, ok, see ya, I said wait a minute, you are here. let's see what you got, He had a thing like a blood pressure checker that he slid in the door and pumped it up and got the door open far enough to get his giant piece of metal in there, took about 20 seconds, he was in. I said, I take back everything I said about you.

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

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!

take an old auto antenna or, a very stiff metal rod and, using a plastic blade (like a plaster knife) bend the glass on the driver's side door; at the top of the door; gently outward; place a rubber or, wood spacer (eraser, wedge etc) between the door frame and, the glass: you only need one inch space; use the rod to press /pull the button / lever on the passenger side
