    Reach up from under neath, find the cable as clos to the bonnet catch as you can then snip it off. Then pull HARD on the cable that goes to the catch. It will work as long it isn't broken at the catch...

    just to make sure cable has snapped ,pull the lever and get someone to push down hard on the bonnet where the catch is .....sometimes the hole gets dried out and doesn't release properly
