ronnie told me to turn your key to position 2 when dissconecting battery to stop alarm going off and it worked so try that,just muffle it with loads of towels or summat just incase

Unfortunately the alarm siren is cunningly hidden behind the nearside front wheelarch liner so unless you fancy removing a large lump of years old plastic that is likely to break at the first opportunity access to it is not really an option!

This is a bit of a mystery to me as not all cars seem to do this-mine doesn't have any problem although I have heard of plenty of times from people who have the same trouble as you.

I'll have a look on the other specialist 7 forum I'm on and see if I can get any pointers.
