SOURCE: VW Bora: Can't open bonnet

first of all not an easy job,you need to get the front grill off and look upwards for a cover that will be covering up the bonnet catch,basicly bend or pull this off,you should then see were the cable goes in,then you should be able to bar the catch with a screwdriver to release it. best of luck

SOURCE: bonnet cable broken, how to open bonnet

The cable can break either at the left or right hand latch - if you are lucky as I was, the cable operating the left hand catch was the broken one, and was broken near the right hand latch release mechanism.
I was able to open the right hand latch with the bonnet release from inside thecar.
You then have to get a piece of fairly strong wire(I used a 2.8mm welding rod) and bend a fairly tight hook in one end. Using a torch so you can see the bonnet release cable, feed the wire in through the grill and hook the swage on the end of the cable that operated the left hand latch. A frim pull on the wire should then release the left hand latch.
Good luck!

My Nissan 1400 bonnet does not open. Cable not broken. Seems to me the "release" mechanism is the problem.

Usually there is a spring on the release lever at the end of the cable, this spring may be broken.

Why 05 pathfinder bonnet wont open

Cable has probably broken or mortally bound-up. Does the release know pull out at all. If not, it's bound-up/locked-up. The latch itself may be the problem.

Hood release will not release hood cable is not broken

the outer cable may have come loose near the lock, if the grille screws are accessable remove the grille and you will have access to the underside of the lock, you may need a screwdriver to push the lock lever aside to unlock the bonnet
