Hi there i presumed as you have told us that the back seats don't fold down that you have access to the inside of the car, if this is the case you could remove the backrest of the back seat and fish for the keys throw the holes in the back panel. regard John

    Hi Singh then the only thing i can suggest is that you order a new key from the agents for your car sorry mate.

    Or break a window and do as previously suggested weigh up the costs of a new key against the cost of a new window.

    Regards John

Boot will not open with fob? could it be deadlocked in anyway??

It won't be a deadlock issue, I bet my last dollar it will be a latch fault as they are quite common but before spending money it could be a programming error. I would advise getting plugged into something like Bosch KTS or Durametric to view the system for faults.

if the back seat folds down you should be able to get in that way and pull the release lever and the trunk will pop open
if the seat does not fold down you may need to get a locksmith
