SOURCE: Stuck Bonnet!

Try having someone hold the lever to open it, then you go to the front and try prying the hood (bonnet?) up with your fingers.  You may have to give a slight push down first.
If that doesn't work, you try 'bopping' the hood near the front edge with the side of your closed fist, also with someone holding the lever to open the hood.  ...not enough to dent it, tho.
Once it is open, lube the latch assembly with some sae 30 oil.  If it is rusted, lube it with WD-40, and after a few days of opening it up several times a day, lube it with the 30-wt. oil.
Good luck!

SOURCE: cant open bonnet on my vauxhall astra 1.4

the bonnet is held down with a spring thats constantly under tension. to get the bonnet open you have to remove one side of the tension where the spring connects to the slam panel. put your hand in the grille and feel for where the spring goes into the slam panel, and use something like a tyre lever put through the grille hole to pop the spring away from the slam panel, thus releasing the tension. you should be able to just pull the bonnet up. my corsa has just done the same thing and this is the only way i could get into it.

How to open zetec bonnet with a broken pull lever


From the bottom. Few times have I seen it broke at the latch. Reach up and cut the cable in half( as far as you can away from the latch). Then cut a couple inches of the cable sheathing of at the latch side. expose the cable, then pull the cable to open. If it did break at the latch, then you'll need a long pick(right angle or hook). You'll have to reach up in the latch to grab the arm to release the bonnet.

Open hood with broken lever


The cable has probably become tight and over-stressed the lever. Often it is possible to remove enough interior to expose the end of the cable sufficient to grip it with pliers or vise grips. An assistant alternately pressing on the bonnet and releasing will reduce the pressure needed to pull the cable.

Opening the bonnet otherwise is very difficult and will require some of the skills of a car thief and specific model knowledge.

How to release the bonnet on a ford transit 2000


you will have to come up in front of the radiator with a long lever and push the latch lever sideways . Use a friend to push down on the bonnet as you push the lever as it will release the pressure on the latch and make it easier to move.

Depending on the age of the battery 4 or more years, then losing it's charge within one week or less, is 99% probability caused by internal corrosion due to trace amounts of impurities within the plates. Save your time & money - buy a new battery!!
