Bonnet stuck. Help

Hi, i hope somone here can help.
As per the title, my bonnet is stuck closed (08 159 jtdm 16v)
Opened fine one day and the next nothing!
The cable appears to be seized.(ive taken off the handle and cant budge it)
After a search here it seems to be a common problem but nobody seems to have posted any solutions.
So, i can get a new cable but how the hell do i open the bonnet? Anybody have any tips or tricks?
Thanks. Ed!

I'm afraid I have often had the same problem. So far I've always opened it in the end, pushing firmly down on the bonnet a few times, pulling the cable a few times etc...

Good luck!
