My driver side car door is jammed!!!?

It seems that someone tried to break into my car while I was at the mall. I have a 2000 Acura Integra. The thieves messed around with my driver side door lock and now when i stick the key in, it goes all the way in but when I try to unlock the door it won't unlock. It seems something is preventing me from turning the key to unlock the doors. It will lock though.

So since I can't turn the key to unlock the doors, I can't get the door to open. I have to crawl from the passengers side to get to the drivers seat which is embarassing.

I just need to get the door to open so I can replace the lock. Anyone ever had this problem?

    it might not be the lock, it would be the latch/rod connecting it to. i say u tackle the door and open it that way lol, thats what i had to do after my **** got totaled x_x. if it says you need to login, make an account its 100% free and good stuff

    The same thing happened to be except it was my Front door. Turns out that my brother just stuck a pencil in there. A pencil lead was stuck. Maybe a paperclip part is left over.

    I would reccomend that you push the car key in as much as possible then lightly tap it in.

    But you should go to a mechanic. It shouldn't be too expensive, no doubt that it'll cost over 45 dollars at the nearest one to mine.

    go to your local machanic and talk to him about it and see how much it cost and it might just be worth it cause it wont be good to fix it yourself...

    Shouldn't have bought an Acura.
