    Fiat Ducato x250 - does anyone know how to open the bonnet if it gets stuck. I can hear the mechanism clicking when Mrs Colpot pulls the lever but as much as I try pushing and lifting the bonnet is firmly latched.

    Try pushing hard down on the bonnet (or even thumping it) whilst the release is being pulled.

    When you get bonnet open, screw the 2 rubber stoppers on crossmember that bonnet rests on up a couple of turns, they will then act as a spring, allowing you to get fingers under to release the safety lever.
