325ci E46 convertible - how do I manually open hood?

My first post and it's on behalf of my dad who is having so much trouble with his convertible hood. I apologise for lack of info but these are the details. He locked keys in boot, RAC man managed to get in via the plastic tray. During this the guy unplugged a wire that is now hanging down. Then a week later my dad discovered the roof no longer worked. After trying to get the RAC to fix it they've refused and he's been quoted 800 for a boot harness. ( I apologise again for not having a clue ) They are now in the position where they don't even know how to manually open the hood. Please please can anyone help, it's been like this for 3 months and they really want it open but don't want to shell out 800 when surely that's not necessary!? Again I don't know! Any info much appreciated and I'll relay it to my dad who probably doesn't even know a forum exists. Thank
