Question

So i managed to lock the glove box of my car few weeks back and wanted to open it over the weekend, when i tried to open it i figured the existing key is useless and now im stuck with a locked glove box with my insurance and revenue license inside it. I tried the flat head screw driver and wiggling the key nothing seems to work. since the car is from a europian origin the key is lazor cut i presume and probably need someone one who has done this before. Any forum members have specific locksmiths you work with for a sticky situation or know someone capable of unlocking something of this sought. i dont want to take the darley road option so any suggestions you guys can give???

Did you speak to the Jaguar specialist at Moratuwa?????

yup he has been maintaining my car right throughout. The fellow was tied up with some work which is why i tried the forum so i could have soughted it out in colombo it self

How did u manage to lock it if they key doesn't work?

Good point learnt it the hard way on specialist forum that i can lock it with any key specific to the brand but i need the right key to unlock it...my guess is previous owner changes the locks on the door, boot and ignition and left out the glove box.

Nice car BTW :)

thanks craved for it for over a decade before i managed to get one.

Update - So the maintenance manager at my work place managed to play around and get it open i got my documents out but he wanted to check if the lock was stuck and locked it back. so for the time being the glove box is locked and cant be used but i can live with that since the documents are out. Will probably order a key barrel and see if our local chaps can adjust it to work with existing master key or get one cut. Thanks for the feedback chaps.

3.2. Nope there is two more options one in moratuwa and the other in pamunuwa. Both have parts with them when it comes to the X and the S types but for the XJ some parts need to be brought down either from singapore or dubai. If i know in advance some parts need replacing i get them down from england it self which is the cheaper option if not the garage brings it down and fits it.
