Re: bonnet help please

find the cable under the dash n see how slack it is,obviously if it come straight out into the cockpit is snapped,if it get taught,use molegrips or equivalent and tug the bugger hard,should release the catch,or seeing as you have the grill off,undo the 2 bolts and the catch will drop,find the cable n again tug hard with grips,should be job done then
