Wouldn't work anyway, would it? In both my classics the whole seat has had to be lifted and pulled out entirely to give access to the boot. There is no quick release or anything like that.

Re: help needed

is it in gear or just handbrake on ?
u could jack the rear (trolley jack) push it back so u can lie under the front and reach up to work the bonnet catch,
then once u have a battery on charge( a car alarm) will open ur car via ur remote,
If its subaru cenral locking then that may not work as the Key remote needs to be paired,
If ur alarm doesnt work your central locking just get some cling film on the window and smash it,
a glass is a few quid as there is plenty about.

Re: help needed

pretty sure seats don;t fold down, mine don't. options are pretty limited, lifting arse end of the car is prob the best. failing that its window smash jobbie im afraid

If it's in gear then don't roll it back on a trolly.

Re: help needed

OK, I've not done this for a long time but can you pop the drivers door window rubber off, then get a hook down in to the lock rod and pop it open ? Used to work on older cars but never tried on a Scooby.
