I've read the "bonnet not popping" thread but nothing there has worked for me. The cable is stretched and doubled up adjacent to the hand lever. I removed the wire spring clip at the business end and re-inserted it after checking it was working properly. Stupidly I then closed the bonnet without checking pulling the cable operated the latch. Now I'm unable to open the bonnet no matter how hard I pull on the cable (with a mole grip). So my question is: what's the best way to access the latch mechanism - through the grill or from underneath? The dealer tells me the latter - anyone any ideas?
