EA Broken Bonet Release

Shet!! The bonet release cable broke on me and being the dumbass I forgot to not shut the bonnet fully!! Crap!! Now its shut and i cant open it, My arm is too big to fit up the front of the bumper! Is there any other way to get it open? PS the cable broke right at the ball on the latch as i pulled the cable right out!

Have you considered a bonnet scoop?? A cut above the latch and add scoop later on...

You might have to look at taking off the bumper..

I got it open.
I had to bend the end of a screwdriver and wedge it up in this hole in the bottom of the catch and click it open. If i didnt have the project ea i would have been stuffed. Alls good now, poeed the net cble on and shes sweet! Anyone needs to kow how its done in future its really quite easy.
