Cannot open hood!?
So this is the story:
Had a bit of an accident few weeks ago and dented the front panel and the bonnet and replaced it all yesterday. Finished at about 00.15 and all happy packet everything up, closed the bonnet, tried to open it and it won't open.
This is what first happened after the crash, but it managed to wiggle free, I just figured it was because the bonnet was bent, but now I guess the whole radiator support moved a few mm back, but its not noticeable.
The latch inside the car is lose so can't do anything from that end, tried pressing down on the bonnet and pulling it up. What are my other options for getting it off? Remove bumper and access the latches from underneath?
Thanks and hope someone can help,
ps. I'll post some pictures tomorrow.
