    Get a cheap locking tool off eBay, the rest is easy. Especially if you do other stuff yourself.

    tip, ring around and ask them there hourly labour rate, it should take 4 hours max at a garge surely, £50 quid a hour at big garage would be £200, now if you find a back street type whos labour is £35 a hour your looking at a more acceptable price.

    I might be able to do it next weekend, however i too have a little baby on the way very soon, so not ideal timing to take jobs on at the moment.
