    Welcome to AF!

    Inside under the heater control switches (in the middle of the car roughly) is a small diamond shaped knob.
    Just pull it towards you and you will see the front bonnet pop up.
    Note the bonnet opens up in reverse to other 'conventional' cars like fords and holdens!

    The knob requires a measured pull directly backwards. Trying to pull back and upwards is not right unless someone has bent the bracket.

    BillsBee'
    You are going to have to open a thread on Projects and put lots of pics of the area where it was found, and its progress back to life.
