FreddieSamuel I don't think lever will act as a guide for the lock pick, taking help from a certified locksmith is helpful as per my opinion.

VictorHart Getting help from the audi dealer is ideal solution and not hiring the locksmith.

RehianaSpencer Use the manual to lock it well or take help from any locksmith or dealer.

Frank Furter The lever is going to act as a guide for your lock pick as well as allow you to turn the lock once the pins are all pushed into place. The open end will act as a handle, allowing you to turn the lever and apply pressure to the pins inside the lock. Thank you.

inanaudi First week I had my car I pressed the exterior handle lock button and wondered why it wouldn't lock. Good thing because the key was in a bag in the back seat.

Onebdhog I've had my Q7 for maybe 6 months, the doors have locked with keys in the car THREE times!! When I've tried to lock the doors (at home) with the keys inside it won't lock, it only happens when I'm out and's very frustrating. The locksmith who came to open the car said it happens ALL the time with Audi's. He said the only one worse is a Toyota.

With the price of these vehicles this shouldn't be a common event. Going in to dealership tomorrow to have it checked out !!

Baltohon I have had my 2015 Audi Q7 lock on me 2x now. If you do not open the driver door and inadvertently throw your purse with key OR shopping bag with key into the back seat or hatch, the car automatically locks. There is no way to adjust this on the MMI. Most days I wear my key around my neck so this won't happen. My husband is furious and demands I buy a new car. If you find yourself in this situation, DO NOT CALL AUDI - they spend an inordinate amount of time verifying that you are the owner and then send a bozo who fiddles with the mechanics within the door and window. Call a regular locksmith and TELL them use two bladders to pop open the door and a wire to manual unlock the door. Many locksmiths will say they don't have the right tool - that is BS. This is a major design flaw PLUS unbelievably AUDI CANNOT UNLOCK IT REMOTELY.

Frank Furter The string technique just chips away at autos that have post-style entryway locks. Besides, it just chips away at post entryway bolts that have a little handle at the best that will enable a bunch to hold them. On the off chance that this is your auto and you are very brave, you're in good fortune. Thanks a lot.
