You've got something against locksmiths? A mobil locksmith will open the
door in minutes and it is not terribly expensive.
Or, take a small flat screwdriver. Place the tip under the door lock
cylinder where the plastic meets the metal. Hit it with a hammer hard
enough to punch it through between the plastic and the metal. Then fish
around for a minute until you hit the lock rods. Pry the right way and
the door will unlock. Then repair the damage.
(You don't say what year you have. This will work with all 1999 to
present Ford SD truck cabs and similar year F-150's with the same type
of door handles/locks.)
I hope it is your truck.
The latest gimmick seems to put a bladder somewhere between the window
and sill, and fill it with air. When you get a gap, then you take
something like an old coat hanger and pop the door release thing open.
Seemed to work OK on my Nissan when I locked the fob inside with no
spare key in the wallet.... And I think it took something like 4 or 5
minutes to open the door. A little sad, actually - no wonder so many
locked cars get stolen.
