The car is parked uphill on a short drive with the front end close to the garage door - does anyone know what my options are to get it to the garage?

Is it possible to over-ride the handbrake and steering lock so that the car can be backed into the road for a recovery vehicle to winch it up for instance?

Any suggestions at all would be appreciated.

Have you changed the battery in the keycard? ... also the answer to the handbrake is YES ... steering lock NO.

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
