How to unlock a car without a key

It’s a question that we are often asked in the course of our day.

Fact is, if you are unfortunate enough to have locked your keys into your Volkswagen, then I am afraid there is no easy D.I.Y. means of unlocking the vehicle and the best approach is to engage the services of a professional auto-locksmith.

Almost the full range of modern Volkswagen models including Caddy, Transporter, Golf, Touareg, Passat, Touran, Bettle, EOS & Passat CC are fitted with secure deadlocking systems and it’s pointless trying to use traditional methods, like rods & coat hangers to pull the internal handles. Despite the best efforts it will be pointless and the only result will be added frustration and unnecessary damage to your vehicle.

Our advice is simple – Always have a least one spare key, even if it’s only an emergency override key without electronics that will unlock the car.

If you are unlucky enough to get locked out call a professional auto-locksmith to assist you and avoid unnecessary expensive repairs to your vehicle.

For professional assistance, just give us a call.
