I had the same problem the other week, what I did was take the plastic off from around the pull handle then unbolted the handle from the side wall and took the cable out from the mechanism and by pulling it hard with pliers managed to free the bonnet release. When opened I gave the bonnet lock a good spray with WD40 and worked it a few times without putting the bonnet down. Hope this helps
