... the lever should always return to the forward position automatically (spring loaded) ... if it is slack then the likelyhood is that the bonnet is actually unlocked and the inner cable is jammed or siezed ... I would still get someone to "hold" it in the open position while you try and get the bonnet open.

Hope it helps

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
