You would have to acess the hood latch from underneath the car up through the grill area. Also if the cable broke off flush, you can cut back the liner and use pliers on the exposed cable. A new cable would come with the liner and all anyway.

Spark plug gap 2007 bmw 328 xi?

Donna, if you still have the original hood on your car, meaning no accidents, there is a tag attached to the underside of the hood. This tag should have on it engine size, idle RPM, and spark plug gap. Spark plug gaps vary, so it would be hard to give an exact gap.

1999 BMW 528i interior hood release cable missing how do I open hood

The hood catch is so well inclosed, you won't get the hood open manually. No tricks here. There has to be a release inside the car. If the handle is just missing, and you can get to the release cable, just pull it with a pair of pliers.

How to gwEt the hood open

The latch is broken or the cable? If the cable that opens your hood is broken, here is what I would do. I would try and reach up where the latch is and find where the cable attached and tug on it, I might use plyers to grip it if my fingers wasn't strong enough. If I couldn't reach up there with my arms, I would try to remove the grill, or see what I could remove so I could reach it and/or see it.

2007 530xi Sports Wagon: where is battery located on 2007 bmw 530 xi...

If it's not under the hood, then the only other place BMW places their batteries is in the trunk. Since it's a Sport Wagon, pull up where the rear spare would be and it will be there, usually on the right hand side.

Hope this Helps,

Bonnet cable brook on bmw 3 series

Okay, so the hood latch cable on your BMW 3 series has broken. Normally the cable itself will snap and a you can purchase a new cable that can be threaded through the casing and reconnected to the hood latch. You will need to get the hood open, so hopefully there will be some access to the hood latch mechanism from underneath the front of the vehicle.
