Locked out of trunk, can't reconnect battery
okay its dark, I'm cold and life has bit me in the........ I've sucessfully welded a hole under the car, I've disconnected the battery in the boot and closed the boot lid, thinking i can open it with the mechanical key...But the key won't go more than half way into the barrell!!!! perhaps half an old missing key is stuck in it! How do I reconnect the battery and open the boot with the remote switch in the door panel? Is there a way to gain access to the boot through the back seats to reconnect the negative lead? will the electric seats or parcel shelf move and give me access? I can open the bonnet so is there a positive 12v power input and negative for a spare battery to power up the cars electrics and central locking? I look froward to hearing from you. Thanks Andrew.
Its an S class 2001 5ltr Limo.
