you should have a big towing eye in the tool kit in the back , it screws in the front bumper behind a flap which you have to prise out ..

I know you can only tow our cars for a very short distance before it wrecks the gearbox , check how far first

Many thanks for the reply Dave; we have already towed the car a mile or so to garage (pretty slowly) , could you please point me to any of the towing distance information you mentioned as I have not been able to find any myself.

It says this in your ownwr's manual :

Automatic gearbox:
Move the gear selector to position
N.
Cars with automatic gearbox must not be
towed at speeds above 80 km/h or further
than 80 km. The car must always be towed
facing forward. The engine cannot be bump
started. "Jump starting", see page 134.
