If you can get in tight at the front you might be able to do something from in front of the Radiator. I mean you might be able to get a screwdriver up there and release it or something. If your in the NRMA or your states equivlant give them a ring.

Last time I did that, had to do it on the ex's parents VT which had flat battery (car was full dead locked)

Managed to get up inside from under the car and pulled the release with a screw driver.

I did the same thing on my VN, i just reached up from under the car, and pulled on the cable from in front of the radiator.

I didnt know the bonnet had windows and a windscreen.Must be so you can see the engine from the outside.You learn something new every day.
