Help needed, the key wont turn to position 1 to release my bonnet catch...need to charge my flat battery as soon as!!!!

Put lots of WD40 down the key slot and keep working it.

Found another way....call the main dealer - solution smash the grille and cut the locking cable.

Or call the RAC and leave them to it.....done somehow after about 15 minutes and it seems ok now.

So the moral is avoid main dealers!!!!

Cheers anyway
