take off your front bar also if you have aircon you my have to loosen the condenser to get at the latch. there is a small lever on the back of the latch that will relese the bonnet.

i few years i ago i owned a xf i had the same issue
jack the front of the car up use some pointy nose pliers and work your way up through the radiator support panel with your fingers until you find the cable hold it with one hand to guide the pliers onto it attach the pliers adn give it a hard yank probably a good idea to got to a wreckers and get a cable to replace it first though
