bonnet? you mean hood? to get it open without the lever you might have to get a tool and somehow make the latch move forward to release.

take off the kick panel and the hood release latch. the cable should be visible from there. You can they manually use if to pop the lathc, if is is disconnected at the door. If the cable has become disengaged at the hood, Im not sure what you could do, but I assume pulling up on it would do the trick.
