    Depending on what engine you have in your car , what you need to do is to some how get a large screw driver onto the release spring and give it a whack .
    how you go about this depends on what engine you have for some vec, s you have to take the bumper, slam bar ,and grill of first on others its easier

    My cable released from the mechanism, I phoned the AA and he managed to get in to it within 2 mins. He had a selection of strong metal wires.
