Hi..there..

If the bonnet wont close or lock then its most likely the latch/lock assembly at fault - one of things you can try if you havent already done so is to manually lock the latch with a flat head screwdriver - this will also see if indeed the latch does actually lock or not..if it does lock manually - then just go back into the car and pull the release again..spray the lock,mechanisim with wd-40 dont be liberal with it - then try closing the bonnet again - then firmly push down on the bonnet until hopefully locks..If not however and the bonnet just keeps bouncing back up onto the secondary lock/catch..then its likely you need to fit a new bonnet latch mechanisim...
