    stick yer head under where the release latch was, if theres still a bit of wire with a thing on the end whack a pair of pliers on there and pull

    whereabouts is the actual release mechanism cos on mine where the safety latch is i can see all of the radiator with no spring mechanism infront of it and from my experience on other car its normally in head banging range

    There's another thread above, this one ends in success (and slight damage).

    Let us all know how you get on

    As it definatly come away or just lose...

    I kicked mine getting out of the car not long since and it wouldn't pop the bonnet and the handle was loose... i ended up pulling it as hard as i could and it popped it. thought it was going to rip out but it worked...

    It was like when i kicked it it just released a little but not enough to pop it - but dont think thats possible so still dont know what really happened...
