Default Disco4 totally locked out - how to open bonnet?

I am totally locked out - yes, I do not have the "safety key" only two electronic keys...I need to open the bonnet/ hood I guess to get some live to my battery again. Normally the battery used to have minimal power to unlock the doors but today it is totally flat.

1) Could I remove the front grill (without too much damage)?
I pulled... and the lower part moved out...but the upper part seems to be screwed in somewhere, correct?
2) Is there a way to reach the wire through the grill, pull and unlock?
3) more suggestions...

Thanks a lot!

Help needed really.

Any luck yet? Seems one might remove the left wheel and drill a hole in the well body to get to the hood release. Then patch the area later so it might be used again someday.

Thanks a lot! I finally relied on the Land Rover dealer getting me within 5 days a new security key. Problem solved! Battery seems to be a weak spot. LANDI
