by using a long lever and looking up from underneath see if you can push the latch to release the bonnet. To make the job easier you may need some one to push down on the bonnet at the same time to release the load on the latch

Can't release bonnet

Get somebody to push down hard on the bonnet as you pull the lever. This should pop it open

The mechanism gets all rusty and the little slide plate inside gets stuck.

Once open look at the bonet latch , you will see it\'s all rusty - about half way down there\'s a slot with a little plate that moves in and out to hold bonnet . Clean all this up and it should fix the problem

You'll have to get your hand in there around the hood latch, and lever the latch over towards the driver's side. The lever that the cable hooks to.
Sometimes you have to pull the grill off to get your hand in there. And sometimes you can lay under the car and reach your arm up to get to the latch. You may have to move something aside to get your hand up there. Use a screwdriver or something to push the lever over to open the hood.
Good luck.

I have a porsche boxter 986 year 2000 and can not open the bonet

you need to pull the C3 fuse and insert a wire and then put the fuse back in.
connect the neg ground to the metal steering column and the positive to the wire. close the car door and turn the door key on and off three times. open the door and now the hood latch will work.
