TavernerHi All, I am very pleased to able to report that the bonnet is now open. As "Classic" confirms and as I already knew, the emergency cable is within the near side wheel arch buried in amongst other cables and air conditioning pipes and is very difficult to find as well as being a little further forward than I though.Anyway threaded a short length of cord through the loop to gain pulling power and the bonnet open. For which I breathed a hug sigh of relief. Checking further within the drivers side and there was a washer with a open slot cut in it which had failed meaning the release cable was not connect to the opening lever.The cable itself was not broken it was this washer/retainer, which had failed see the Pet Parts book for the bonnet and part numbers either 28 or 29.I was fed up by the end of the afternoon so, with a more relaxed min I put the car back into the garage. I have to say that the whole incident has left me with a lot of questions which need to be addressed. Suppose you were away on holiday with all you tools and jack locked in a boot that you cannot open. I will take some pictures and post a more detail explanation together with some thoughts as to the modifications to be made to the emergency system to give peace of mind.Meanwhile thank you all for you input and suggestions, it is nice to know that you are not alone. Kind regardsMichael
