2010 XF V6 Diesel
I have a 2010 XF. When I tried to open the bonnet nothing happened. I took the vehicle to my local mechanic who confirmed that the nearside bonnet release was seized. He was unable to reach the locks and contacted Jaguar technical. Their answer was it's not possible to reach them, the only answer was to cut through the bonnet destroying it in the process. Fortunately for me he didn't but spent seven hours dismantling the front of the car, replaced the cable and locks and put it back together. As you can imagine it was a large bill. He in fact said that he would not take on another XF with this problem. So my hindsight advice would be keep the bonnet catches well lubricated and if there is any sticking etc replace them. Hope this helps others out there.
