I've just had my bonnet fixed as the cable holders on both bonnet catches had broken off, leaving the cable dangling in the engine bay!!!
The only way in, after trying all sorts of ways, was to jack up the car and go in from the underneath. I got a mobile mechanic to sort it out as I wasn't too confident without the use of a ramp!!! He managed to work his arm around various engine parts and reached the nearside catch (the offside, he told me is pretty difficult, if not near impossible to get to). Fortunately, the link cable was still attached to the offside catch. With a bit of fiddling, he finally had the Bonnet open. All I need now is 2 new catches......beware of the price......40 each!!!!

Hope this helps
