Time to replace the windscreen to get in ,it would be a lot easier than any of the other glass

How did you get the keys locked in the car AND the deadlock on?

If you have power windows, breaking a window wouldnt be the best idea, not sure how much youd be looking at for replacing the window, but youd also have little bits of glass everywhere.

I had to get a new key not long ago for my VT and it cost me something like $80? something around that mark

i dont get it either.
the deadlock doesnt activate if you push the door lock knob on the door itself so if they keys are in the cabin, go get another key cut ($28 without head - you dont need it) and unlock the door.
if its in the boot, i still dont know if the deadlock is on if the boot is opened - anyone?
not being up with VY's, i gather there is no key hole in the bootlid?

The windscreen may cost $200 + but you get a new screen out of it without any other damage if its done right

Yeah get a key from holden hopefully you'd just have to provide proof of ownership. A nd no there's no key hole in the boot.

hmm what a pain in the arse... the only other way i know is to jump on the roof real hard the car will think its in a rollover and unlock the doors :p (its a safety mechanism) but i dont think you want to be doin that :p
