993 locked and battery flat - help!

My 1997 993 C4S is locked and has a flat battery - lights left on all day. It's not responding to the key fob alarm remote. With no key access to the doors, how do I get in? If I could open the bonnet I could jump start it.
Any help will be very much appreciated.

Yes, you should have key access to the driver's door at least?

If you haven't got the kay, even if you can get in, you can't start the car!!

yeah don't i feel stupid.
i'd never realised that the black "buttons" on the door handles simply pop out to reveal the door lock keyhole. brain not switched on. car jump started fine.

I have never heard of little black buttons covering the keyholes - maybe this is a feature for your market that we dont get. - my 993 has stainless steel key slots... sorry I was a little abrupt!

on my 993 there is a bonnet pull wire with a loop on the end located under the front of the n/s/f wing, handy if you can't get into the bonnet via the normal pull.
