Yes, if you can get your hand through the bit where the flap is (the small part that swings out horizontally to cover the little rectangle gap that appears when you put the hood down, behind your ear), you should easily be able to reah thru and touch the engine cover latch mechanism. Happened to me, and phew, was pleased I could do that

Thats not good, I have two cables going to the catches on mine. If no one comes along with a way of getting in for you, I will take a look at mine to see if I can work out a way. The other place to ask is on the FB DNA forum its seems busier there, though I have no idea why I cant be doing with all the Karens on FB

Thankyou for your replies, managed to just reach the mechanism and unlock it, eventually!
