Had my 1st major mishap with the Alfa yesterday! I was out watching some motocross practice down at one of the tracks. Came back afterwards to the car, and opened the boot with the key before unlocking the car at all, to change my mucky boots. Anyways, put the key down in the boot, and just as I slammed the boot closed I realised my mistake
Thankfully one of my friends had afew tools with him, including a nice tirelever to prise the glass in the passenger door opened enough (the car is a GT, so no doorframe!). They let me do all the pulling on the glass, always abit risk of smashing it
! I was able to shove in part of the doorseal also, which gave an extra 1/2 cm of room also. We had a long thin metal bar, that we could push in the corner of the doorframe. We tried to push the boot realise, and the central locking buttons 1stly, to no avail, Alfa obviously have thought about that, and nothing happens when you press them! Next thing up, we put a hook on the end of the bar, and managed to hook it onto the doorcatch, and pull it, which triggered the central locking to unlock!!
Happy days, I was back in business, thankfully I didn't go with one of my other friends suggestion that I just smash the glass, that there was no hope at all ha! (he even offered me a hammer :P).
The alarm did go off several times while attempting this, and the whole procedure took us over an hour, but I will admit that it was fairly easy to break into myown car
Also, I have no spare key for the car! Can I get a normal key cut, to allow access to the car if I have a similar problem, or loose the key etc again? I know I wont be able to start the car without the immobilizer, but it would get me out of jail if needs be.
