Hi, if you look under the bonnet (hood) there is a battery boost point located on the inner wing (not sure which side on lhd) it's under a small bright red plastic cover. This is the positive terminal, the negative connection is to a suitable metal part of the engine, usually the alternator bracket or similar. You will be able to power the cxar up via these points and then open the boot (trunk) to gain access to the battery.
Hope that helps Matt...

Trying to open trunk with no power


Use jumper cables from another car-put the positive jumper cable on the post on the starter where the battery cable connects, then the negative jumper cable to a ground on the frame of your car. Turn on the car you are jumping with and let it run about 10 minutes. It might charge up your battery in the trunk enough to open the trunk.

Battery died


what i would do would be to try and jump the car by popping the hood and connecting the jumper cables to the jumping post under the hood. there is a positive , and what you need to do is just ground the negative to something metal(not engine block). this is located close to the front left corner. email me if you dont understand. i will try to explain better.
