    Friend has to move car, KeyFob not opening car. Need to explain how to get in through back window.

    Reason I need pic is that the roll bar makes it virtually impossible to reach or see the latch. Just a pic would suffice. I thought it would be an easy internet search but NOTHING - I'm totally shocked.

    Thanks
    Tom

    Might be helpful, You used the key to open the glass hatch. I can stand next to the back wheel, and reach around to open the door using the emergency latches. This is how you would open the doors if the battery is dead. I have no idea if they work with the door locked though.

    Good luck.

    Doug show's how to manually open the doors with the latches in his quirk video.

    Yes, through the hatch is how you get in in all circumstances since the manual door release over-rides everything.

    Only problem is roll bar is over the latch - there is room to operate the latch but now very difficult to even find and contort to operate.

    As we discussed...so this is for the benefit on others...as one is pulling down on the mechanical release lever, one can bend the the lever either to the front or to the rear of the obstructing roll bar without breaking the lever. I have done this...as has Tom Sessions who passed the info along to me.
