Typically when the release lever and cable appear to be working, but the bonnet will not "pop" up, I bang on the back corner of the hood with my fist while pulling on the lever. This will usually jiggle the latch enough to allow the bonnet to "pop" up. If not, have one person pulling the lever, while a second pushs down first, then pull up on the bonnet.
