Bonnet cable broke, bonnet shut, any ideas?

My bonnet cable is broke with the bonnet shut does anybody know how to get the bonnet open. I have tried to get it via the front grill with no success. Do I have to take the bumper off? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

very simple as dave said, however, threading the replacement cable thru took me 2 hours, all knucked grazed, skinned or cut, and a boot sized dent in the wing caused by frustration,

moral of the story?

dont do it if you're cack handed like me......

'boot sized dent in the wing caused by frustration' - LOL... makes me feel sorry for your 'other half'... or perhaps, like me, you don't have one...
