Can't open bonnet on my 156
I have a 2000 156 s/w and just cannot open the bonnet! it wont even release onto the safety catch, absolutely solid! I have removed the interior lever mechanism and tried pulling with mole grips with no luck. I have also tried doing this with someone pushing down and pulling up on bonnet. no luck.
Im guessing i need to stick a screwdriver in somewhere (but cant see anything so dont know where?) or remove grill and undo the 3 bolts that hold the mechanism on. But I cant figure out how to get grill off without opening the bonnet!
Would removing bumper help?
Any other hints sugestions? any help much appreciated!
