I got locked out of the Corsa coupe a couple months back... kinda funny I
changed the door locks to new ones, then went out of town without taking the
new key with me =P.
Anyway I used a plastic coat hanger to just reach in from between the front
and rear glass and pop the lock button up.... the whole ordeal lasted less
than a minute and resulted in not the tiniest bit of damage to the car...
And we all know (and so do a lot of high school kids) what a joke an old
fashioned ignition switch in the dash is..... look up under the dash and
without breaking or unbolting a single thing there's all the wires you need
to do an old fashioned hotwire job! I'm in even worse shape... a while
back I started up the Corsa and moved it, as I got out of the car I realized
the key I had in the ignition was the key to a completely different car....
my ignition switch works with a screwdriver... and I didnt' even know it.
I got a replacement switch today, assuming I can get it turning freely.. tis
a bit corroded =P.
