I think it was Saint Q who remarked at one of these threads that we're so used to pushing the button on the key fob that we don't think about the fact that we used to open car doors with the key all the time, way back when.

Anyway, to the OP, you're not the first person (nor the last) to ask this question:
- How to open the hood (1) or trunk manually when you have a dead 12v car battery (1) (2) (3) & how to unlock the older E39 if the key is locked inside the trunk (1) (2)
Please read the suggested threads and add value, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person stands on your shoulders.
