SOURCE: vw golf bonnet release
On mine, a RHD, it is a plastic lever just forward of the door post. It is a crappy piece of plastic about four inches long.Mine has recently broken and will result in a bill for about £60-70 for replacing the lever and the cable (the cable is very tight)
Getting the handle off was a hell of a job until someone spotted that inside the handle, on the lower part as accessed from the outside, is a clip that needs to be pulled out to release the handle. Only then could we reach the cable and that took an enourmopus amount of effirt to release the bonnet.
As the mechanic said, "I didn't expect this sort of rubbish from VW"

If you pop your Vw emblem out of its hole, right behind it there's a thin notch cut into the support for the hood latch. If you look inside there with a flashlight you should be able to make out the shiny silver ball that's the end of the cable. Now stick a small flat head screwdriver against it and push to your right. Sometimes it may help to push down a little on the hood just above the mechanism, as you no longer have the mechanical advantage of the lever. Good luck hope this helps.

SOURCE: cant open bonnet on a vw golf
inside the car cut the covering back on the release cable to expose the wire release cable, with a pair of locking pliers (Vise Grips) pull that inner wire while someone pushes down over the hood latch area, that is what we try 1st in the shop, most times that does it.

If indeed the bonnet cannot be opened from inside the car, then you are going to have to climb under or figure out how to get to the latch under the bonnet and open it. Hard pain in the rear but its the only way
