Loo between both light in the long **** shape gap just below where the bonnet is. If you look to the right, you should see a black cable hanging down. If not the it has snapped away, but if you can. Here is what you can to to open the bonnet. Use a long pair of plires and gab the cable. When you have a good grip, pull the cable firmly to the right (passenger side light). This should open the bonnet. It has worked for me....

A sticky throttle cable would be the thing I would look at as easiest way and more than likely it.
Spray some Lubricant in the cable near the carburettor also under the dash were the peddle is there will be a cable behind it.
If you are not shore which one is the throttle cable get someone to press the accelerator peddle and look under the bonnet you will see it move.
Seriously, I would use an inspection camera to locate the cable that snapped and then grab it with a good pair of vise grips and pull the bejesus out of it. Or check out the latch mechanism and use a cost hanger to get in there and move open the pawl that holds bonnet in place.
1. If you contact your local Daewoo dealer Parts department they can look the paint code up for you. There is nothing special or unique about that colour. It is just one of the stock colours on the SE models.
2. Otherwise if you contact any large auto paint supplier they usually have a very large data base of paint codes for many vehicles. Also check the vehicle identification plates under the bonnet to see whether there is any paint code information listed there.
usually down to a snapped cable usually seized mechanism and it is fairly easy to get the bonnet up, first if you look up under the front of the bonnet you can see the two bolts that hold it in place, then using a ratchet, extension, universal joint and a 13mm socket you can undo the bolts and lift the bonnet enough to then release the catch or cable, it can be a bit tricky to do,Also the cables have a habit of coming off the release handle, if you remove the handle held on by 2x 10mm bolts and see if it is still attached. i am going off a fiat as i do not know what car it is,
The cable can break either at the left or right hand latch - if you are lucky as I was, the cable operating the left hand catch was the broken one, and was broken near the right hand latch release mechanism. I was able to open the right hand latch with the bonnet release from inside thecar. You then have to get a piece of fairly strong wire(I used a 2.8mm welding rod) and bend a fairly tight hook in one end. Using a torch so you can see the bonnet release cable, feed the wire in through the grill and hook the swage on the end of the cable that operated the left hand latch. A frim pull on the wire should then release the left hand latch. Good luck!
hi, If the cable is snapped in your car, then get underneath the car.Try to reach the catch and flip it manually.If you are unable to reach it with bare hands, a bent metal hanger would help to do it.Now,open the bonnet. You can reach the parts in bonnet now. If you are uncomfortable or unable to do it, please call a "Repair person" in the nearest locality to help you.Have a nice day.Please rate my solution as helpful.
The cable is routed from the lever to the drivers side fender where there is a box mechanism. There, 2 cables are pulled by the release cable and each runs to a latch on the corners. It sounds like you only released one of the latches. Trace back to the box where the cable splits.
