Way to many of our detailers do this. I have a rubber wedge, and I use a long straight end screwdriver wrapped up in a shop rag. I then use the
screwdriver at the top of the door frame, and pop out the door a little and I can then get my wedge in there. I then use a rubber mallet to hammer in
the wedge to get the desired spacing I want. I have a metal rod I use, but you can use a metal hanger. If it has power locks I usually go for that
button first. If not I go in hook first and hook the door handle, or lock depending on orientation.
Make sure you do not force the door! You could bend the door, or if you do not have an upper door frame, you could break the glass!!!
If worse comes to worse, the best option you would have, short of calling AAA, or asking a police officer with the equipment to do so. You would have
to break a _ The cheapest window on any vehicle is going to be a front door _ I have yet to resort to breaking the glass. Just take your
time and dont get frustrated and you will become an expert real quick.
If am pretty sure you don't have an upper door frame. So you have to really be gentle with it, but you can get more movement with a window, because
the window tracks can flex, and the glass will to (to certain amount). So you would have to use the screwdriver with rag, to get the desired spacing.
Or even two screwdrivers and then stick something rubber in between the window and the roof.
