Hi, My bonnet release system has either snapped or jammed and I cannot raise the bonnet. Any info on how to gain access would be appreciated.

Right guys, no need to take undertray of or jack car up! To reach the cable what you need to do is take of the passenger side grill in the bumper, easily done with a flate headed screw driver by gently prizing from the botom of it, once this is removed you will see a small white honey coned gill, remove this, very easy just tug it, once this is removed you can see the bonnet catch and will be able to pull the cable through this hole in order to open the bonnet. And whilst i thought my cable had snapped, it hadnt. Its comes in two parts, and connets via a plastic box which incases the nipple end from the interior cable to the hook end of the bonnet catch, some how they had seperated, so just clip it all back together and hay presto. Hope this helps anyone else who has had this problem.
