Try contacting a company such as Lebra on this. The company has been around for a long time and should be able to help you out. Make sure you give them all vital information on your car,such as whether or not it has foglights or a ground effect package. They make one style that just covers the first few inches of your hood, and another one that covers the entire nose of the vehicle.

Sounds like the bonnet switch might be going out. You have an electrical contact switch that tells the alarm computer if the bonnet is open or closed. Either a miss adjusted or worn switch will send a false signal to the computer making it think it is open when it is not, you will also want to check the wiring that goes to the switch for signs of chaffing or kinks as the wire itself could get and send a false signal.
Under your dash there is a small lever with a handle and marking. pull this for ejecting the bonnet. use your palm to push off the safety lack that hold the bonnet- safety for holding on during high speed/ wind if the bonnet lack opens- to lift up your boonet. You can look through the gap of the bonnet to see this safety latch.
now on top of the engine you will see the cap for the oil inlet.
Now beffore you do that , use the dip stick to look for the oil level. wipe it and check again. Only if the oil is down you need to replace. Also topping is not required unless the engine is old/bad. otherwise it is important to change the oil filter and oil along with your service. So check this out. Good day
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
your going to have to readjust the bumpers, there has to be tension so the hood pops up, try adjusting the latch to get the hood to close even, try that but put the bumper back or adjust acording to the latch adjustment and sprak latch good with wd40. good luck.
Hopefully the cable has not snapped. Have someone else lean on the bonnet a little. (Not too much or you will dent it) Try and operate the catch while they are leaning and releasing. Or sometimes dust can accumulate on the catch. Perhaps you can spray under the bonnet with a can of WD40 and hit the catch. Try the above trick again after you have sprayed it. Once you get it open find the cause before you close it again :)
replace it.... buy a new cable assembly and install it (unless, of course, that's not exactly what's wrong with it). You say it keeps 'coming out'... tell you what, take a photo of 'where it's coming out' and perhaps we will be able to help you.
my mechanic told me you cant adjust the tappets on these Hyundais because they have hydraulic tappets.He told me to just use premium fuel to stop the rattle.I use 1/2 premium and 1/2 regular unleaded to make it a bit easier on the pocket. good luck dude
difficult one but not surmountable,need right tools to remove grille and find a way into bottom of catch ,suggest you call your local mobile mechanic as this sort of thing is hands on and without car in front of me its difficult to advise as iam a general mechanic with a bad case of old timers.but most likely cause is the outer cable has pulled through the end fastening but what end ?? as i wrote its a hands on job.
