I'm trying to sneak out of the vault and trapping Elijah by going to the left but I always get stopped by a maintenance door with no way to get through, it just says I need a key. Is there a way to open this door or am I doing it wrong?

To leave the Sierra Madre vault you need to backtrack through the whole way you entered the casino. You cannot take the same route Father Elijah takes into the vault room.

This is done under severe enemy pressure, pressure from collar detonation, and movement limitations. This not only makes it dramatic, but also means your courier will be unable to flee the vault with all gold bars (unless using glitches); you can only leave with what you can carry within your capacity.

Instead of going to Elijah's maintenance door, return to winding paths to route yourself out.
