    Oh yes, I managed to do it today :eek:

    As it was a cold morning I was wearing a big coat, so I decided to put it in the boot before starting off for a drive from Gloucester to Cardiff.
    Opened the boot with the remote, took off the coat and put it in, closed the boot. Ah, were were the keys? As I checked my pockets I heard the famous 30 second click of the doors auto locking. I think you can guess the rest...

    What to do? Well, I knew there was RAC cover with the Daihatsu warranty, so I phoned them and after a 20 minute wait in a queue :(, they said I was covered and would be there in 75 mins.

    Time passes.....

    When the guy arrived, he said it would be a bit of a challenge :think:
    But after 15 minutes, he had opened the doors.

    Now, I don't think it's a good idea to post exactly how he did for obvious reasons, but I will tell you the old 'coat hanger down the side of the window' idea didn't work, nor trying to pick the lock - good news for all of us! He had to be a little more inventive! Anyway no damage was done to the car :)

    So have I learnt a lesson? Well I hope so - always open the door before the boot :rolleyes: Time will tell!

    Rex.

    Glad you got it opened without damage.

    It's one of those things you think you'll never do until it happens.:-((
