SOURCE: VW Bora: Can't open bonnet
first of all not an easy job,you need to get the front grill off and look upwards for a cover that will be covering up the bonnet catch,basicly bend or pull this off,you should then see were the cable goes in,then you should be able to bar the catch with a screwdriver to release it. best of luck

The leaver may have broken, or the cable is simply too stretched and loose to open the hood. Another reason is hood might be putting a lot of pressure on the lever, therefore making in near impossible to open bonnet (hood), so you may need someone to push or pull up on it as you pull the lever.
See if you can get at the cable itself, directly behind the lever. If so, cut some of the plastic cover away until you see the bare cable, give the cable a tug with pliers.
I once had to remove the grill to get access to the cable there, I cut into the plastic cover, slid it back and grabbed the bare cable with needle nose pliers and gave that a tug.
See if you can get at the cable, if the lever isn't working remove it (usually two bolts or so) and try pulling on the cable there.
Hope this helps :-)

Most of the time the cable snaps at the release handle. If you remove the handle and get the end of the cable, you can cut off the cable jacket and use needle nose pliers or vise grips to grab the cable and pull to release bonnet.

Did you try with 2 people.
one guy pushes down on the hood and then pulls up after the other pulls and holds the release.
Grease the latch every so often to prevent this.
