theres a single catch at the top in the middle of the door,you can get a screwdriver in there and force it down,or iff its the type with the catches either side about half way up just boot the door where the catchers are ;) all spare parts readly available from b/q that you break

Its a pin in the top middle. Ill try a screw driver but not sure if it will work. I drilled a whole so I could pull the cable with pliers but I cant see it. It must have come out the top pin and dropped right down.

I think I can take the wooden strip off across the top which stops the garage door closing too far and attack it from there!!

I tried getting stroppy and whacking the top where the catch is, but I think ill whack the whole door down onto my car, it doesnt seem that sturdy, not good!

 

Its like someone is just telling me I shouldnt have a Zed, lol!!!!

just remove the wood at the top you will then see the catch/lever use a chisel or screwdriver and hey presto

Yup, removed wood, just managed to get some pliers in and open!

 

Only took about 5 mins, bit scary really!!!!

 

Fooking cable snapped so off to B&Q.

 

Cant go any further with car now though, cause I think my alternator is fooked elecrically, causing the battery to drain, so I put it in a shop to get checked over. Wont have a idea whats up with it till wednesday now.

Hi Mark,

Hope the car gets up and running at last tomorrow so you can enjoy it. I don't think there's any problem with the alternator, its probably just the alarm where the cars been standing for a while. The alternator charged that battery from flat in no time at all when we swapped it with TonyC at Japshow.
