anyone ever locked their keey in their Jeep Liberty?

Well guys.. My sister locked her keys in her Jeep Liberty. So I was going to see if I could get it unlocked for her trying the old shim and coat hanger method. Well the coat hanger won't reach the unlock button, and I can't get my hoop to go around the unlock knob.

I had another idea though.. on the bottom of the window is a piece of plastic trim that goes all along the window frame and then under the mirror. It seems to just lift up (except for where the mirror holds it down)

My thoughts were that if i removed that piece of trim I may be able to get my hanger and hook down inside the door to unlock it that way.

Anyone have any experience with Jeep Liberties? It's a 2002 model.

Re: anyone ever locked their keey in their Jeep Liberty?

the jeeps have the pull up types of locks next to the glass right? i use to work at a dealership and the best thing i figured out for all dodges/jeeps/chryslers is the plastic strapping that comes on some boxes and whatnot. get one thats pretty long, fold it in half, and get the loop part slid in between the door and weather stripping, kind of working from the top. get the loop around the lock and pull up. ive done it a million times, b/c i was prone to lock keys in them lol.

stuff like this

figured out a cool trick..

Take your straightened out coat hanger and take a piece of string. make a loop in the end of the coat hanger, but as small of a loop as u can manage. Pliers are a must.

Take your piece of string and create a lasso. run the string through the metal loop insert into car through door jam. Then you can put the lasso around the pull up door lock pull the string and bam! pull up and shut off the alarm.

The string also allows you to maneuver the coat hanger alot better.
