kango, bonnet release doesn't work !!

I visited an old lady today and spotted her right hand rear tyre was nearly flat, so i offered to take the wheel off, get the puncture fixed, and put the wheel back etc.etc.

I soon found a major problem the Wheel Nut spanner was under the BONNET, i found the bonnet release lever under the dash IT DID NOT WORK !!!!

It feels as if the travel of the lever is correct and it feels as if the cable isn't broken, but the bonnet doesn't spring up like it ought to (i assume it opens from the front, LOL ?)

It looks a really big job !!!!

Currently in timmy toad's garage:
Mine = Vauxhall W reg. Meriva 1.6 8v, Wifes = Renault Clio RN T reg.,
