O don't know if you can get through the grill, but if you can, you are still going to have the hood stick down by the catch at the front so it won't get you very far. Treating this as a 2 man job may be more successful. One of you needs to be pressing down on the hood directly above the catch (To relieve the pressure on the catch) while the other pumps and jiggles the lever in the car. This may release it. Alternatively (and I don't know about this car in particular, but it will work on some) If you lie under the car, you may be able to see the control cable tor the release, If you can, and you can hook it and pull on it while someone is doing the jiggle and sitting suggested above, the slight stretch of the outer cable may will give you that extra bit of movement on the inner to get it freed off.

Help my xj6 1995 wont start, no lights, everything is dead but it worked perfectly ok yesterday, and I cannot open the boot to check the battery

Sounds like a total battery drain - something left on that you do not know of? Open the boot using manual over-ride (ignition key or cabin pull cord)

Hood wont open on one side of 91 jaguar

The cable release is stuck...try spraying with some good releaser and a long "straw"to get under from the edge. Spray and try, spray and try, spray and try. That worked for me...and then I cleaned it all very well and used a heavy grease in the entire area after spraying well with wd-40 as far into the cable as I could.

Position in car of the horn relay

one relay is going to work both horns if there are two horns.
horns are different than relays.
all horns are ran from one relay.
the horns are only different in sounds.
if one horn is not working and the other is its the horn itself.
disconnect the horn itself and listen for the relay clicking .

95 Jag XJ12 hood got buckled can't open the bonnet

Look under the inner guard right below where the release catches are ... there'sa rubber grommet each side that lets you get a long screwdriver or light pry-barin to release the hood catches. Get a mate to pull UP on the inner headlights at the same time( same as when you close the hood) this Should spring the hood enough to open .Then put a couple of pieces of rag (like a big fist)in each catct and SLAMthe hood down. May have to be done acouple of times to get it right....bones

1995 xj6 battery dead can't open trunk

Fairly easy way is to remove kick panel on passenger side rear seat.(one screw) There is a battery positive feed to the fuse panel there. Heavy guage red wire with a rubber cap covering the post. There is also a common body ground post in there.(double black wires) Just hook jumper cables up and go.
