Thats an interesting problem you got there ! Id say your in trouble.
Will have a look at mates car and see if i cant come up with something for you.
I assume you have a VT wagon ?
Right click save as . .
well that definately sucks...
only thing I can suggest would be to remove the door trim- if it is even possible with the door closed, I can't say as I have only ever removed it whilst the door is open. If you manage to get the door trim off it should just be a case of disconnecting the lock cylinder I would imagine. But once again I have never had to do this. Probably best to wait for KAL's reply and hope he comes up with something or get in touch with holden- thats if they would be willing to give you advice other than "leave your car here, we'll fix it and charge you a fortune for our labour".
edit: now I have thought about it its gotta be impossible to remove door trim intact with door shutbecause you wont be able to access some screws that need to be removed.

I had the same problem. What I did was put the window down as far as it will go and then use a thick piece of wire (a strong coat hanger will do) and slide it in the behind the window. Use a small torch to look inside and you will see a type of lever at the back of the door. Aim for the lever and push down on it, I made the mistake of trying to latch onto it and pull up at first. Best idea is to first pull the trim off the other door so you know what your looking for to open the door.
Thanx for your help , i got the door open today , bent up a hacksaw blade and got in behind the door and found the button , was easy in the end , pays to keep ya cool cheers stormpatrol
Man!!! I am impressed. Would have never of thought of doing that with the hacksaw blade.. Thats clever man.. Pays to think outside of the circle.
