Have you got an aftermarket grill?  I tried one and it didn't fit properly, only millimetres away and it'll stop working.  You can get a longer plastic cross thing (probably has an actual name) to allow a lot more play in the bonnet catch.

I would recommend removing the cable and plastic bit all together. Just leaving the locking mechanism itself and using a long screw driver to open and close the bonnet.
