If yours is the preface model then you can get a screwdriver in through the grill to release the catch. Then adjust or replace the cable as necessary. On the facelift model, I believe it is a little more difficult. Judging by the year, then yours would be the preface model. It is very easy to adjust the cable once you have got the bonnet open...
