My car was broken into



  renault clio 06
Hey. So i've had my Renault clio 06 plate about a year now (almost). I know its getting on a bit but it was all I could afford as a first car! Especially with the insurance prices now... wtf...
Anyway, 2 nights ago, i woke up to find the drivers door open slightly. Rest of the car still locked but my door was open... No damage at all. They haven't broken anything, just somehow opened the door? Checked the CCTV footage to see that some scumbag went through and stole my sunglasses (hidden in the glovebox). Feel so violated that someone has done this. Especially with it being parked on my driveway. But anyway, after checking the footage time and time again, it was definitely locked. So how the hell did they get in? Its made me feel so nervous about leaving it anywhere if they can get in so easily? Is this some sort of issue? Anyone know how they did it without making a sound? There are a few marks down the door by the lock, like something has been wedged in there but other than that nothing... And they might have been there before? I have no idea what so ever. Any thoughts? Thank you!

Sorry to hear that. scum bags. But I know for a fact I locked it so don't be surprised if you did too! There must be some piss easy way for them to get in?

Funny or not this happened to our qashqai over the weekend. Either chances and checked if it was unlocked or she left the door open slightly getting the little one out.

Sunglasses got taken and inside was a bit messier than normal.

Probably unlocked the driver's door by mistake. Press twice to open the rest of the doors.

Coat hanger to the unlock button on the dash?
maybe... but the window was all the way up? Unless there was another way to do that?

Checked the CCTV footage and watched myself check the door after i locked it. Wish it wasnt dark so i could see how he got in. only managed to see the thug when he was already in the car and my lights came on :mad:

Pull the top of the door back slightly, get it by where the seal is, simples.

You may wanna start leaving the gloxbox empty and open, chances are the person will probably come back if the car is that easy to get in.

I guess there's some comfort in that nothing was damaged, could have slung a brick through the window and then tossed the car.

I've got a 1080 iGeek camera off Amazon when they were on sale for £35 and even that's better quality than yours!
