I know this is a well known fault but fingers crossed I'm stuck at the last bit! I've read loads of really helpful threads on the internet to undo my seized bonnet latch but have gotten stuck.
I initially tried the screwdriver through the grill trick to compress the white section of the bonnet lock and open the bonnet. This didn't work for me (or the 4 people I got at work to have a go), so I jacked the car up and undid the lock from the chassis and got the bonnet open that way. Now I've got the lock mechanism stuck on the bonnet and can't get it off.
I took off the two 13mm bolts that attach the lock bar to the bonnet but the rest is attached at the front. I also tried putting the lock mechanism back together and trying it once I'd WD40'd it, but no joy. The lock mechanism seems to work fine, the white cross rotates freely with the key when it's not in the lock.
Any top tips for separating the lock from the bonnet?
