If you have no card at all then then you cant get into the car at all unless you have a spare blade which fits in the card. You can open the pass front door by flicking the plastic cover off the lock but you wont be able to start it just roll it, but im assuming this is lost to. If it is you will have to have the car recovered to renault. There is no way in the car at this point unless u put a quater window through, so the recovery firm will have to drag in on the wagon. When you get to the dealer they will unload it and have to put it on a dolly to steer it as the steering lock will be stuck on, ok tho if you have managed to release the handbrake. It will need a new Mag card ordering to chassis number. This can some times take 7 - 10 days if it has to come from france. When the new card comes it will have a blade so they can get into the car and then code the new card to the cars UCH / ECU .
