Good morning all, new on here so thanks in advance. For my sins, I have an 07 Trafic and I can’t open the bonnet. The release cable is still attached to the hand lever in the van but not operating the bonnet catch at the front. I think the cable has become detached from the release mechanism. I need to fix this so any ideas how to open the bonnet? Thanks.

I had a similar problem on my van (not your type)...... the garage mechanic got me to hold the lever open as much as possible then he hammered along the front edge of the bonnet with his fist. Eventually the bonnet popped open. The cause in my case was the cable had turned in its holding clip and losing tension although both ends were still attached.
It might be worth a try.
