I knew that in the event of a remote failure you could unlock the car via the key and the passenger side - but do I deduce that this doesn't unlock the boot and you have to pull the rear number plate off? Found this photo online... and yes I'd like a green one :)

How can you unlock the car via the passenger side ?
on U.K. cars this is where the emergency key blade fits. There is a cover on the handle that comes off to reveal the lock.

Boot lock is visible with USA/Japan style square plates, with UK rectangle ones it’s covered and so yes that’s how you get in when the power is gone to the bootlid.

My car is Japanese spec so I don't need to remove the rear number plate but assuming that you have power, there is also a handy button on the dash that pops the boot :)

I fitted a number plate surround which I can remove with no tools so I can access the emergency lock behind, otherwise how are you going to get to this without a screwdriver to remove the number plate first?

I've attached my rear plate with high-strength velcro dots.
