Re: bonnet stuck

De-icer. Lots of De-Icer. Does the Bonnet not Pop open when you pull the inside release?

Re: bonnet stuck

If it's iced up and the engine runs, let it warm up for a while. If still stuck, get someone to gently push down on it while you pull the release lever, it may pop free this way. Otherwise, I would be tempted to spray with dismantling/dispersing fluid from underneath, if you can get to it.
