Obviously I need to get access to the bonnet to get charge onto the battery so any ideas? So far I'm contemplating trying to force the bonnet (don't fancy that) or smashing a rear quarter light window (also unappealing!).

So, any ideas? Obviously there are security implications here so happy to use PM and if you want I can supply VIN/reg/log book details to prove ownership!

Thanks in advance!
hi lee, if you if you get hold of your o/s grille in front bumper pull it towards you and up at same time it will come out and then you can see bonnet cable and catch pull and it will open,did it myself when battery packed up.good luck bumper grille fits in bottom first so you have to pull out top part first.
