Call the AA or RAC, they got into my car within 5 mins  ;)

Were the deadlocks on though? How would they have got around those?

I am with the RAC, but didnt think they'd be able to get past the deadlocks.

Hmm worth a go then, if the more persistent key wiggling doesn't work

Agreed with Robbie, get a man and a van out ;) Or a woman, not being sexist or anything! maybe I should of said a 'person' and a van? Good luck dude.

No need all sorted now phew.

After a bit of fiddling, I found that turning the boot lock to the unlock position a couple of times, with the button already pressed in, seemed to unjam it and i got into the car. Whoop whoop.

On climbing in through the boot, i found I couldn't unlock the doors as the deadlocks were on. So i put the key in the ignition to open the windows, to make access a bit easier, and the alarm went off lol  :D. I've never had the factory alarm go off before, how do you stop it?

I quickly popped the bonnet as first thought was to disconnect the battery (if that even works?), but by the time i climbed back out the boot and shut it, the alarm stopped. So i then opened the bonnet anyway, and the alarm went off again lol !! Oddly, although the horn stopped after ~30 seconds the lights carried on flashing for a good 5 minutes before stopping, whereas the first time the alarm went off the flashing stopped with the horn.

I then went back to fiddling with the drivers lock, and after a couple of sprays of WD40 and a several minutes worth of wiggling the key in every direction, it eventually unlocked  ;D

Lock seems ok now i've freed it up, but one thing for sure is i'm not putting the deadlocks on again. More trouble than they are worth if you ask me !!

Happy days!!

To de activate the standard alarm (on mine any ways) I used the key in drivers door to turn the lock to locked but not deadlocked.

I never deadlock it as I have RCL now, keys are a pain ;D

Well that's all well and good assuming your drivers door lock is actually working lol. That was my problem in the first place!
