    Sorry for being stupid, do I get you right that you used your coathanger to hook the recessed button up?

      In essence I had a loop in the end and in the same way as the packing strap works I pulled toward the rear of the car and up. Causing enough friction/grip to lift the pin.
      i assume the reason why the coupe had flush fitting door pins was to stop a pry in with the frameless glass.

          Is it wise to post publicly how to gain entry without a key?

                  The crooks don't use this method as it takes too long and you are standing around obviously like a sore thumb.

                    I'm a Police officer. Rarely do I go to theft from vehicles now. More likely as suggested a window will be put through anyway.
                    These days vehicle crime circulates around burglaries for performance cars.. I would never own a Golf R put it that way.

                      I've never managed get the knack of the coat hanger.
                      The packing strap is ok on interior door handle and the air bag helps.
                      was in a rush once so just did the window.

                        I would rather replace it then to repair it with the help of locksmith.
