My battery recently died in my 2008 VW Passat and all I have is a key fob (no key), so I'm basically locked out and can't access the battery to charge it.
I've called several locksmiths but they said they don't mess with VWs. So, the options I'm left with are:
- Towing it from my parking garage to a VW dealer just to get the door open.
- Breaking a window and replacing it. Which I likely won't do.
I really just need access to the battery.
I came across this video that shows how to release the hood bonnet manually but when I remove the VW logo, I do not see a wire hanging or anything similar.
Is there a way to release the hood manually for a 2008 VW Passat? If so, how can it be done?
