hello 1st thing to try is have your assistant push down with slight pressure on the leading edge of the bonnet while you pull on the lever by taking some pressure off the catch this often allows the cable to do it jobif you then get it open then apply some grease to the lock and mechanism

HI. cancel my request the answer you gave me did not work and I do not wish to part with money for nothing Roy J.P.
Expert:  Matt replied 1 year ago.
Hello Roy you get more than 1 answer, the process is meant to be a back & forth to fix the problem the next thing try is to use some pliers to grip the bonnet cable as it exits the back of the lever in the cabin, 1st apply pressure with the lever then pull the cable with pliers as welland if that doesn't work then it starts to get a bit more serious I'm afraidas the undertray has to come off to try and access the catch from under neath
