Can you open the boot from inside a 2011 bmw 5 series?

Asked by Aug 29, 2019 at 10:56 AM about the 2011 BMW 5 Series

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

As the heading states really. A range of details has lead us
to having no access to the boot of our bmw 5 series after
my partner took the battery out and then closed the boot
without thinking. Theres no key hole that we can see, we
have searched thoroughly and obviously no battery in the
car means the key fob wont work or the button in the
drivers area. Any ideas how to access it without destroying
the car?
