    locked out!!

    the lad who bought my old astra rang me the other morning asking why he cant get the car to start after its been sat 3 weeks, told him to charge the battery and check the indicator light, came back day later and said its black so i told him not to shut bonnet properly and replace the battery, 2 days later he comes bk and says he closed bonnet properly and now cant get in to the car due to me de-locking the drivers door and boot, so asked me what i suggest, i told him to put the window thru but he dont want to do that, he was guna smash the grill out but i said i didnt think that would work due to the bonnet pin being on a latch

    so just wondering if theres a way to pop the bonnet as th battery is totally dead and it wont even charge to the charge wires i had hidden behind the bumper

    IIRC you have to jack her up, take the wheel off, remove arch liner and then you can reach from there?

    Let him figure it out for closing the bonnet when you said not too.

    Jack it up and get jump leads from another battery to the chassis and the alternator's + terminal. That will give it enough power to open off the remote

    If the new owner of my old car kept ringing me i'd tell him to do one if its been longer than 2 weeks, not my car anymore, so not my problem...
