As the title, the latch for the front access panel has jammed.

Is there any way to get into this compartment other than becoming destructive with the surrounding bodywork? :o

OK, problem solved - well, sort of.

If anybody else has this issue, if you get a large screwdriver in at the rear edge and prise upwards with enough force, the outer 'cover' will eventually separate from the 'framework' part of the panel, giving you access to the latch mechanism.

All I've got to do now is work out what to use to glue these 2 bits back together again, oh, and replace the release cable as the little swan neck wire on the end of it, that engages in the latch, has unswaged itself from the cable, :realmad:.
