    Facelift 2004? This is a stupid question but, have you opened the bonnet before? When you pull the inside lever, is the the hood poping up? Also is the second latch moving freely?

    yes it is facelift 2004 and i managed to reach my arm up inside the engine bay tight fit and wedge the cable back in the latch whilst someone popped it up and cable tied the latch up to the cable so it wont pop out again, only way to do it cant be done from the front if anyone else gets stuck
