    I went to open the bonnet yesterday and nothing happened.

    It didn't sound like the cable has snapped or anything,

    the leaver inside the car just pulls back and retracts.

    Does anybody no how i can pop the bonnet to open further?

    any help at all..

    Thanks in advance

    Get someone to pull up on the bonnet while you are pulling on the lever. Maybe it is sticking in the bonnet lock mechanism.

    remove the engine under tray and reach up near the osf headlight and find the cable and pull
    if its detached then use a very long flat head screwdriver and flick the lock over on the front lock carrier from the underside engine bay
