I had this before, but my keys were in the ignition. I called my breakdown cover and they used wedges in the door and a rod to press the unlock button on the key.

However as yours are in the boot, you'll somehow need to get to the boot. Wedging the door and pressing the unlock button on the door won't work, as the car will be deadlocked.

It may likely that you'll have to 'break in'  :undecided:

you wud be better off breaking the lock than doing anything extreme with a brick. do it the old fashion big hammer a screwdriver break in way.if you can get to the bonnet catch from underneath the front of the car and get the bonnet open sometimes some cars if you disconnect and reconnect battery can affect the central locking to go off. but only on old dodgy cars but worth a try ??

To be honest, more damage would be done to bodywork and locks that way.

Maybe it is best to tape a window up, break it, fold it up as it breaks and get to the boot via folding the rear seat down.

ye cuz popping a lock or breaking into the engine bay is more damage than smashing a window in . ye good one mate ye !!!!  :nerd:he wants the keys back with as little damage and lack of security as possible smashing the sh!t out of a window isnt really the best idea all the weather will get in you can get your stereo nicked the car damp cause a smell. how much for a new window fitted immediately or pop a lock in the boot handle then either replace barrel or fit a boot popper . much cheaper also good excuse to get smoothed boot.
