it's just a wafer lock, I'm sure a raking attack or a jiggler would open it.

Time to make a backup key.

Due to situation as subject noted;
Any ideas for picking the lock?
It would be helpful to know what kind of vehicle you are talking about.

I have never done that, but the gas cap lock on my '88 wore out, and the key wouldn't open it anymore. I ended up disassembling things until I could get at the bottom side of the lock. From there just push the latch open.

YMMV. I don't know what year you have, or whether it's similar to mine. Good luck.

That is always a good thing. I had to look back at other posts, and finally at pics (only one of which was bigger than a thumbnail) to figure out he has a 1200.

On the 1500 often the door is loose and flexible enough just to pry the door over to pop it open. But I don't know if that holds true for the 1200.

It is difficult enough to come up with a useable answer to a question but it is next to impossible to read the original poster's mind.
