Bonnet opening

Hi all
I can't open the bonnet on my 156 TSpark Veloce S wagon. The cars been laid up for a while and it just will not budge. Is there another way to get in? Please??

Usual technique is to get someone to apply downward pressure on the front of the bonnet - to relieve tension on the catch, whilst you pull the release lever. Once you've got the bonnet open, make sure you lubricate the catch fully.

If the above doesn't work, you may need to get brutal with the grille to allow access to the 3 x 10mm nuts that hold the catch to the body. grilles are easily obtainable from breakers and easy to fit.
