I'm afraid it might have to be drilled out by locksmith,but read this first.

as with most of these doors you should be able to get at the hinge pins
tap these upwards and the pins should come out, you can then remove
the door from the hinge side

I lost my key to the patio door and called out a locksmith which cost 70.00. All he did was drill out the lock and removed the affending article which can then be replaced with another lock purchased at nay DIY store. Much cheaper than 70.00

Use great care when using this method.

When the main lock is engaged on some of these doors, bolts are also thown into the top/bottom rail of the door frame. Severe damage can result, requireing complete replacement.
