    Does the handle have a loose feel to it? i.e. does it feel like the cable has snapped?

    Have you got someone to press down on the bonnet whilst you pull the open lever, might work.

    you'll have to get at it from underneath then..take the bumper off and you should be able to access the retaining arm of the bonnet catch spring..unhook it from the slam panel and the bonnet will open up..

    Have a look through this post mate. There's some pics on page 2 of the release mechanism and the track of the cable which might help.
