    Have you tried opening it whilst someone else is pulling the handle inside the car

    You can either break the grille, or pop the undertray off and use a long extension to get to the bolts from underneath.

    the handle is not responding at all, even when i pull it and someone push the bonnet down.

    about the grill, i managed to take it off withput breaking it, but there is one bolt under the bonnet that is quite far and not easy to open. if i open it, i will be able to open the bonnet??

    as you have the grill off, use a small 10mm open end wrench to remove the 3 acorn nuts holding the hood to the latch,

    or

    push this latch to the right hand side of the car. (so drivers side if right hand drive, or passenger side if left hand drive)

    looking from
    underneath up.
