Ok, so went to open the bonnet this afternoon and the lever just pulled right out but nothing happened.
The lever is now really loose and has no weight behind it and the bonnet catch wont release.
We tried pulling the cable with pliers and pushing/pulling on the bonnet but no luck.
So question is, how do you open the bonnet without using the lever?
Is it a case of damaging the grill?
Its a 52 plate Sri 2.2dti.
