    I've been installing a new wheel/airbag so had the battery disconnected, When i re-connected it (with the keys in the ignition!) the car locked itself, Is there an external way of getting back in?

    Long shot but worth a try!!

    Any help is appriciated

    Thanks!

    I think that you can't get in the car without any professional help. After all, you want your car to be safe, so noone can get in when it's locked (that includes you unfortunately) :)
    If you don't have your spare key, then you should visit the dealers with your VIN number... They will know what to do...

    i had the same problem in my previous car, VW Passat, i called the RAC they used an inflatable wed on the off side drivers door to prise it open enough to side in a long pice of steel wire he bent it so it had a hook on the end, he then fed it trough the slight gap made by the door wedge from one side to the other he manipulated the wire so it engaged with the door latch/handle on the nearside drivers door.

    he had it opened in n10 minutes

    hope this helps

    or you could do the same on the pass door and hit the unlock button
