Short of a tyre iron to lever the bonnet free

Oh no!!! Thats a bugger!!!

You don't have too many options but try this

1. Try and get the front grille out and you may be able to access the catches from there!

2. Try and reach them from under the engine bay!

We had the same with a clio 172 and it is a real pain in the A***!!!

Good luck with it and give us a shout if you need anymore help!!!
