Re: Newbie stuck - can't get into Megane

Hello and welcome to the forums

that first line was funny.. looked like a nooby chav car thief trying his luck

ok, you have all the docs!
thats good, you need to go to your nearest dealer and hand over all docs and ask them to check the emergency key (have you both key fobs??? have you tried both of them on the passenger emergency lock, are they both the same patern?)

give all to dealership, have them check thier records on Renault UK main records for original Key codes and get them to make up a new key/s (if they are different to the current emergency keys you have.)

it might be that your car has had the passenger lock replaced at some time and the lock keycode changed, if this has been done by a dealership then there will be a record of the lock repair and any keycodes of new lock.
(the other possibility is the lock has been forced/broken or has had its linkage bar fall off)

the only other option is to join the AA or RAC or ask a passing police officer to come out and unlock the door for you they should be able to open it without damageing the bodywork or lock.
(this is really trying your luck)

best of luck.
