Discovery 4 HSE Bonnet release snapped

Hi everyone. This is my first time asking a question on this site, but I am really stuck. Can anyone help me find a way to open my bonnet to fix the connector that has disconnected ( I think?).
I have read that it is a security issue to post any thing related to gaining access to the car, however, Land rover dealer want to break my grill and then remove security tags on each latch to gain access, then charge me for all three replacements plus labour.
Is there a way someone can help avoid this butchery of my car and avoid the dealers not putting it back together properly after? I've seem people use the PM option? but I'm not sure what that is and how it works?

Any help would be amazing
Thanks Da..

Hi everybody, this is also my first post but have exactly the same problem as Da on my daughters 2016 Discovery 4 HSE.
After many hours of searching the net looking for a solution I realise that because of the security situation it is hard to find. I would be extremely grateful if someone could pm me with a guide. Please note that the problem is not at the release handle end.

Regards

Help bonnet release will not work. D4 HSE

Hi

The other day I tried to open the bonnet and had a resistance but nothing popped. Now the cable offers no resistance.
My garage thinks we are going to have to start cutting to get in.
All the security features work against the owner.
I have just found out how expansive a new front grill is.
If anyone can help I would be grateful.
64 Plate Discovery 4 HSE.
Any help would be appreciated as I find nothing on Google

If it helps, I bought a grille on a Discovery Facebook group for £15, used it whilst modding my own, then sold it for £15.

Doesn't have to be expensive.
