The wire coat hanger method

Find a old wire coat hanger. Straighten out the hanger and create a small hook at one end. Next, insert the hook into the door jamb between the window and the frame. Carefully maneuver the hanger to a position close to the lock and move it up and down until you feel it catch on the locking mechanism. With any luck the lock will pop open.

Loop and knot method

This one can be a little more tricky. Find a length of string and tie a knot roughly the diameter of your index finger. Slide the string through the weather stripping in the door frame and using a back and forth motion, edge it down towards the lock. Wiggle the knot over the lock button and when there is a solid grip, pull to pop the lock. In theory, this should unlock your car.
