Bonnet Cable Failure - Suggestions Welcome


Does anyone know a way to open the bonnet on a Laguna II without smashing the grille?

The cable seems intact but won't operate the catch. I've tried the "push the bonnet down" etc, and tried holding the cable outer with vice grips while pulling on the inner using blocks and a claw hammer for leverage - all with no joy

Thanks in advance.
