SOURCE: Bonnet releases from in the car, but second black catch is loose.

You will see a black hook with a hole in it on the right side of the hood´s snaparm (looking direction). Push the black hook right, and you will be able to lift the hood.

SOURCE: Inside driver's door release catch will not open

The little rod from the inside release catch to the door lock has been broken/come loose.

Take out the door panel and see what is the problem. Then either fix it or let someone to fix it.

SOURCE: Bonnet not open. Catch on near side will not

By pushing down on the hood while releasing, it may relieve some pressure, if that is what is preventing release. If that does not help, then you may have to pry up the side that is opening, and see if more pressure helps? If that does not work, then you may have to try to reach in with a long rod to manipulate the release. I don't know exactly what it looks like, so can't describe exactly what to do. So I would suggest going to a used Volvo car lot and taking a look at on that year, that does work.

SOURCE: I pull the red lever inside the car to open

The release catch should be just to left from the center in the second row down. It should spring out as you pull up on the hood. If not then it may be broken but you can use a hook tool to pull back the safety catch to open the hood.

Most likely it's the latch is just set too tight and needs moved a touch. Loosen the attachment and set the release hook away from the catch for the boot.

Get a flashlight so you can see where the catch is on the door. When you locate the mechanism you should be able to release it with a small screwdriver by depressing the locking tab.

I cannot open the bonnet of my car

I think the spring which pops the bonnet is too weak for its weight.
I keep a small pice of wood in the car which I put under the release lever. This holds the catch open while I go round to the front, lift the bonnet and release the safety catch.
Try it!

Im having a problem opening my hood on my 2000 land rover dis 1

You don't specify whether its just that you can't find the release catch, or whether the release catch is stuck / broken,

In the UK (Right hand drive car) the release catch is situated in the left (passenger side) footwell, within about a foot of the lower front door hinge. In a Left Hand Drive car, I guess this would be reversed (i.e. right hand side footwell). Pull, and it semi releases the hood. Next, walk to the front of the car, pull the hood up about 1" and insert your fingers about a foot left of center. Sweep to the right, and you'll release the secondary catch and the hood will be open.

However, if its stuck / broken, then ......

You need to work underneath the front of the vehicle - the idea is to get at the catch and release it with a long screwdriver flicking the catch to open the bonnet -or getting a grip of the cable if it is hanging loose ( i.e. broken ) then getting a grip of the cable with mole grips or even pliers - to pull and release the cable / bonnet.

Once the bonnet is open - you can deal with renewing the cable assembly, or greasing it thoroughly.

The hood will not release to open. I released the inside lever & the hood poped up a little. In the grill there is a plastic "T" lever that you pull to release the hood. I have pulled it hard & the...

So I gather that the release inside the car has release the hood's primary catch, but the T handle is not release the secondary catch to allow the hood to fully open.

If this is the case, take some lithium grease or WD-40 (lithium grease is much better and lasts much longer) and spray it onto the catch assembly.

Try pulling on the T handle some more after a few minutes of the grease soaking in and see of that releases.

If that doesn't work, then take a long flat screw driver and press it against the catch gently hit the screw driver with a hammer (you should be trying to push the catch towards the driver's side of the car)
You may need someone to be pulling on the T handle as you hit the catch with a hammer. I actually had to do this with a jetta before....

Renault clio bonnet wont open

Get a second person to pull bonnet catch and you push up and down on the bonnet whilst catch is being pulled. 1, cable possibly stretched, 2, look at bonnet catch under the coloum to see if wire is attached, 3, try and lie under car and look up the back of the bulkhead to see the catch and release it manually. Hope that helps.
