Replacing the cable
This superb post enabled me to get the bonnet open. Unfortnately I needed to replace both cables and one of the catches. Getting the old cable out of the bulkhead between the passenger and engine compartments and threading the new one through was tricky. Here's my advice:
1. Cut the old cable inside the passenger compartment and pull it through into the engine compartment.
2. Cut off the plastic tube that the old cable passed through as close to the bulkhead as you can inside the engine compartment and push the rubber grommet through into the passenger compartment.
3. Push a length of the old cable through from the engine compartment into the passenger compartment to use as a "fish".
4. tape the new cable end to the fish inside the passenger compartment and pull it through into the engine compartment.
