    Default Who's had to break into THEIR focus?

    I was just at the carwash and decided to leave it running with the music on (self-wash)....boom, doors locked as i closed the door for some reason.

    So after some internal head rants i went to the garage next to the place and scored some tools, i got it. But what a BITCH!

    A few chips and weather strip damage, but definitely cheaper than any locksmith/breaking the window anyday

    Had to break into my wife's cousins Sedan the same way. I had AAA do mine and they do basically the same thing use a pry bar to slide a bag in that opens up enough to reach a rod to open the door.

    use a plastic wedge and a small inflating airbag. Then use whatever long device you have to hit the lock or door handle. Same thing we do to the Audis here at work.

    My friend locked his keys in his car outside of a Denny's. Luckily I had my car, so we went to my house to get a hanger and came back to attempt to get it open. Meanwhile, there was a group of Romainians hanging out in the parking lot and they started to come over, to harass us we though. But they just wanted to see if we needed help, eventually we were able to get a hold of the hatch release button and get in that way.

    On my old 2000 ZX3, just about any ford key was a universal key. 10 seconds of bumping and raking would open the hatch lock every time.

    My euro hood lock jammed up once and I had to pry it out of the front grille to get my hood open. That sucked.

    Then on a cold February winter's night I locked my door with the key inside, foolishly thinking my fob would unlock it. Nope. Had to wait for my parents to drive out my second key. You'd think Ford roadside assistance would help, but they use local tow trucks and personnel and in Utah they did not have 24 hour emergency service on Sundays.

    I havent locked myself out of the focus but on my first car I did. It was my 18th birthday so I went to the strip club with my friends. I locked my car keys in the parking lot. I was so pissed but I laughed that I had to lock my keys in my car at a strip club. And there was no way I was telling my parents to bring me the spare keys at the strip club. So me and my buddies were ready to bust out the window and this stripper chick comes up to us. She had a long screwdriver in her purse for some reason ( lol ) and I managed to pop the clips for my sunroof and get in. Left some marks in the paint but they were not bad at all. One of my dumber momments in life.

    i thought you just popped a goathanger in there and hit the trunk button, pull the knobs, and crawl in from the back?

    or do the hatches have that?

    btw, used chewing gum wedged in on the side of the the button defeats this hack. i allways keep a little in my car if im in a bad neighboorhood. ghetto minty fresh, and you gotta break in to get in.
