see if it possible to use a long rod from the ground up in front of the radiator to push the lock plate sideways where the cable is attached
you may have to fashion the end to get to the plate and have some one press on the bonnet at the same time to release the pressure exerted by the bonnet spring to make it easier to move the plate
to open your bonnet or hood theres a lever on your left front kick panel or just on that panel under the steering wheel,once the hood is released the outside hood release should be just under the hood near the rad support
find bonnet catch and while someone pushes down on bonnet, pull the cable from behind the release lever (normally a black plastic covered wire) either the cable has siezed or the outer cable has sliped out of its retaining plate, if cable has broke, then access from under car with long rod to push lever over, again someone lightly pushing on bonnet will make it eaiser
you need to take a coat hanger & bend it to fit in the front of the car & pull the latch. I know it's vague but it needs to happen. Or,check to see if the cable broke at the inside latch release & grab the end with a vise grip & pull.
when you say the bonnet has been pushed in do you mean like in a traffic accident if this is the case then is your grill damaged,the reason i say this is the only way you are going to open your bonnet is through your grill so a replacement grill will be needed.if you take this course of action,take a torch and look up under the bonnet you will se the bonnet realease at the very front of your bonnet it will have the bonnet realease cable attached you might need help at this stage,get a friend to push down on your bonnet,put your hand in and push or pull the lever until it releases as this works on a hook system and with the damage it might need a pretty stronge screwdriver to force it always remember the radiator is very easly damaged and very costly to replace .Hope this will help you get your bonnet open .adrian
