Punto Evo - bonnet release cable snapped or broken

I am the owner of Punto evo 1,4 (2011) and bonnet wont open. I have searched this forum, and contacted forum member Dave, but the sollution he has, doesnt work for this model.

Can you give me an advice on how to open the bonnet if bonned cable is broken?
