SOURCE: 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.

My BMW 1 series keeps saying the bonnet is open when its not, and the alarm keeps flashing up on the dash. Any help?.


Check the bonnet pin (small switch that is pushed in and out by the bonnet opening and closing) which tells the computer if the bonnet is open or close, maybe its faulty or broken and the computer thinks the open is always open even though its closed.

My bonnet on my 2006 5 series will not fully close the cable does not appear to be broken


hi dibblesmith

when you pull the hood/bonnet release, push the release back in to make sure its in all the way, then try and close it again. the cables sometimes get stretched or one of the clips that hold the cable in position has failed. if that doesnt work and the retaining clips seem ok, try some lube on the latch and work it back and forth by hand to make sure its not sticking.

I have a bmw320 the bonnet release handle wont open the bonnet, the handle is ok still has the cable on, how do i open the bonnet??


Did you try with 2 people. one guy pushes down on the hood and then pulls up after the other pulls and holds the release.
Grease the latch every so often to prevent this.

Bonnett release lever will not open bonnet series 3 bmw


The cable is routed from the lever to the drivers side fender where there is a box mechanism. There, 2 cables are pulled by the release cable and each runs to a latch on the corners. It sounds like you only released one of the latches. Trace back to the box where the cable splits.
