you have stretched the cable.you need to get under the front of the car and reach right up to manually pop the bonnet.
been a few threads on this and always punto's.

also try and put paragraphs on your posts as its hard on my old eyes ;)

you will need to replace the cable unless its popped of the mechanism,more likely stretched or snapped.
i bet its been getting harder to pop lately?
