Cant get the bonnet up... the wire is broken

I am having a major problem... the wire to the bonnet broke last night. Is there a way I can open the bonnet without doing any damage to the car because it is in great nick.

Thanks Heaps,
Matty

It depends where the cable has snaped. I had the same problem with my HZ Sandman. The boot puley had come loose from the metal bracket in the console so I could not open the bonet conventionally. If your problem is similar just get under the bonet and find the puley wire that is infront of the radiator. Pulling that will release the bonet.

a screw driver, maybe a bent one can do it from the front (inbetween the bonnet and radiator top) in the older models, chipping paint will most probably happen. Maybe play with a plastic pokey thing if youy don't have tool number 54g-s/91368456789 ;)
