Question [Q] Help on wiping nexus 4 cracked visualizer not working

My nexus 4 (google version mako) is cracked and I want to format it so my info isn't on their when I sell it for parts. The problem i'm having with this is because its cracked my screen wont work and I have it rooted with TWRP because of this i can't manually wipe with volume buttons. Is there any way to fix this. I tried opening nexus folder with my computer and deleting files (like video files) but there was still 3.34 GB being used and no folders left

Not sure if there is another way, but wouldn't re-locking the bootloader and then unlocking it wipe all data?

Edit:
A quick google search found this:

One note: I think I have read somewhere that the Nexus 4 doesn't to a full wipe with subsequent unlocks after it has been unlocked/relocked once. I'm not sure about this, you will need to test this once.
Edit 2:
Or just do what opssemnik said.
Do you have a question about the HD2 ? Ask it here for an instant response.
