Hi,

  Does the key just turn & nothing happen if it does try this,

Push the grill in about 10mm & put key in & try to open it

This works every time on mine

i can put the key in and turn it to 2 but its a bit of a struggle to turn it to 3.can hear a click turning to 3.

OK update on the bonnet release.yesterday phoned a garage about the bonnet,chap on the other end said get a new key cut...9/10 the key blades are worn.so this morning got a new key cut for £15 and low and behold it worked. :)  :) saved me £150. :)
