About my 4th gen, Need help. Lost keys :(.

Alright, so I took a family trip to Disney World in the summer amd lost all my keys. This including my car keys. I had a spare set that I gave to my father, and guess what, he lost those as well. Now, I cant get into my car and I have the funds to fix it up and need to get in. Does anyone know if I can use a slim jim to get in, the main thing I need to get is the title so I can get new ignition keys made. The title is in the glove compartment which is also locked. So I also need to find out how to get into that aswell, since I don't have the door keys to open it. I do own this car, you can see pictures of me in it, I just really want to get it back on the road. Please respond if you have any ideas or thoughts. Thanks- Joshua.

Call a locksmith. Then take the VIN and your registration/title/proof of ownership to your local GM dealer if the locksmith can't make you some. They should be able to make you some more keys. Not really cheap though.

No ideas on how to open the door? My title is in the glove compartment inside.

Bust the glass? You're not getting in that car with a slim jim. I can tell you that right now. A locksmith would be inside it in no time, but you'll probably tear stuff up in trying to open the door with makeshift tools. Unless you don't care.

A locksmith can do it for like $30 or so.
In the other thread you posted about this I mentioned calling AAA.

Call your insurance company and have them fax something to the dealer with your name and VIN.

My car has pretty much been sitting for 6 months, I've been at school and never got the car registered because I did not have money enough for insurance, which is necesary for registration. I want to do so now, since I have the funds, but as stated before, the title is in the glove compartment. I found this on youtube, and he is actually using the long tool on a 4th gen, go figure. I can get these tools as my father works at an auto part store, but will it work on mine? I am pretty good with my hands, and I feel motivated. Should I?
