right-side-up as they face you and set all three wheels to “0′.
2. Starting with the wheel on the left, to the right of the wheel,
look into the narrow space between the right side of the wheel and
the body of the lock. Look down into the shaft. (If you have a
safety pin, straight pin, or thin nail file, place that in the
3. While looking down into the shaft, rotate the wheel slowly. You
are looking for an indentation (a square notch). When you find
the indentation, stop and write the number down. (If you are using
a tool, the tool will fall into the indentation.)
4. Follow the process for the remaining two wheels.
5. Try to open the piece of luggage.
6. If the luggage still will not open, please try the following:

To find combination -find thin plastic package from battery/toy/anything in a plastic shell, Cut stip about 1/4''wide-1''long. Start on either end left or right. Slip plastic in slot beside each dial as you turn the dial feel for a flat spot on the shaft that goes through the dials. Stop on the flat spot for each dial. The flat spot is small so pay attention. These numbers are your combination . Open your case.Takes only seconds once you know what a flat spot feels like. Works on cases that are locked closed or open. GOOD LUCK

I had the same problem, basically I went through all combinations starting 000, 001 ,002 etc. Ok it took a couple of hours, my fingers were sore but cheaper than buying another one !

I am sorry but the solution above was totally innappropriate, samsonite suitcases are expensive. I got mine as a B-day present and i am not prepared to buy a new one.
Does anyone else have any practical suggestions?
