Hi, bonnet has decided it doesn't want to open ( or rather I've not kept the front latch lubricated...)

Problem is the tab that shoudl pop out through the grille - doesn't!

Read soem posts re-getting to it from under-neath.

Do you need someone pulling the lever inside the car at the same time?

other question:
Would the AA fix thsi sort of thing - know it sounds little lazy?
but it's cold, and raining at the moment....so seems a fair-ish thing for them to do?

anyone had any experience fo asking them.

Thanks for any suggestions,
