Re: Bonnet doesn't open
As mord says, get someone to push down on the bonnet over the catches (they're located above each headlight so push there) whilst you pull the lever, this should get it open if its a sticking catch or cable.
If you do then get it open, clean up the catches and locks and apply some liquid grease to them.
If you need a new cable, I have a brand new one I bought when I had the same issue and thought the cable was stretched / snapped. This was 12 months ago now - I just grease the catches whenever I'm checking
/ screenwash and its been fine. You can have the cable for a few beer tokens if you want.
