locked out!

Apologies in advance if topic has been covered already, but I can't find a thread. My Laguna has been sitting unused for a while and the battery is completely flat. I tried to insert the manual key in the slot on the front door but it doesn't seem to go in the slot. I assume this key is meant to unclip the cover, but it is not doing it. Any suggestions, please?

Re: locked out!

You have to take the plastic cover off the lock first. The little slot is there for you to put the key blade in it to remove the cover - insert and twist is how I used to do it.

Once the cover is off you will see the actual door lock.

Hope that helps.
