Re: Locked out bonnet...

If you can't get underneath to get to the bonnet catch then the only way is to wedge the bonnet edge to bumper, you need enough room to slide a 13mm socket and extension through, then loosen the nuts holding the catch to front panel. Use masking tape and plastic wedges or a lock out airbag to help wedge the bonnet up.

I managed, had a friend help me push it around a 90degree bend, and then we could tow it the rest of the way to firm ground with another car, and from then on it was "easy" to get under there and pop the bonnet with a screwdriver.
