How do you break into a car?

#1
The alarm on the car outside my flat has been going off every 30 seconds since 3am. The owner is away and I was only able to sleep by putting on my ear defenders. If I were to break into it (using my ice axe or a hammer) what should I disconnect or damage to turn the alarm off?

Tow it to Liverpool. Somebody else will do it for you within a few minutes.

Classic squaddy, Chuck an old spark plug through his windscreen, as this is covered by insurance, call the plod, saying you think there was an atempt to steel it, then it's there prob. job done

Oh yer dont get court

You dont need an entire spark plug, just a small piece of the porcelaine from one, about as big as your little finger nail.
Walk past the car and flick the porcelaine piece firmly at the side window as you walk past.
Alternatively, you could just use a straightened wire coat hanger with a loop at one end.

Knock the window in, open the bonnet and disconnect the battery. Instant alarm failure. Then remove any valuable from the car and make it look trashed.

When he gets back, tell him some kids broke into his car but got scared off, you took the valuables out for safe keeping and disconnected his battery to keep the battery from going flat and to give all the neighbours some peace.

True Skicarver, i wasn't thinking of the cars age, although if you position the wire correctly it still can be done even on new cars.
Suppose an entire can of expanding foam squirted up from under the car might muffle the row at least :)

My pal the plod tells me that there is usually a battery hidden somewhere on a decent alarm, so picking it up and taking it away is the solution. Some of the councils have pretty decent enforcement on this, but the trick is to phone early rather than hoping that the pri*k will come back before midnight.

many cars have latch rod protectors and protectors around the latch itself which preclude any possibility of using a coathanger to open the car. Also, the deadlocks on many vehicles prevent this mode of attack.

jap (grey) imports tend not to have these features if that helps.

Okay this one worked for my friend - smash side window - open door - take tax disc - ring council tell them about the annoying car they won`t be interested till you state it has no tax disc. They turned up 10 minutes later and towed the vehicle.

I've just got back from rugby (we won 31-5) and the car alarm is now silent. I stuck a sign on it this morning which read:

To the owner:

This car alarm has been sounding since 3am this morining. If this does not stop I will break into the car and stop it myself.

You have been warned!!!!!


Everything is now quiet.

Peace at last!

I hope you signed it and left the owners your mobile number so they could thank you.

Expanding phone followed by a potato to act as an anchor the put a baloon over the end of the exhaust so if the car starts and somehow the exhaust fumes get out they inflate the baloon the baloon explodes and the owner thinks he is in for a real bill, usually this is followed by chunks of potato flying out the exhaust very quickly and causing damage to anything nearby.

Superglue under the door handle. Its a contact adhesive, next person to touch it (theif or owner) stuck to handle.

Boring bit. Environmental health at your local council (24hrs) noise nuisance can be dealt with by them.
