Cant open my bonnet on my audi a3 think cable is stretched need to check water oil etc

You need to see a dealer on this, the car needs to more than likely be on a car lift to reach the latch to release it.

Audi 2002 bonnet will not open. Bonnet pops when interior handle is pulled but will not open fully when pulling catch on front of car !!!!!

Sounds like you have a cable problem take it to a garage.These are very tricky to replace and expensive.

Hood catch release cable become undone and cannot open the bonet. please help

by using a long lever and looking up from underneath see if you can push the latch to release the bonnet. To make the job easier you may need some one to push down on the bonnet at the same time to release the load on the latch

Audi a6 bonnet won't open

the only way I know how to do this is with the front bumper removed & as follows:
Here's the deal:
If you can remove the AC condenser you will have more room to maneuver. You will remove the grill with the logo.

use a ceiling rod (rod for ceiling grid tiles) or a long straightened wire coat hanger with a small hook on one end and fish from the drivers side of the latch it can take up to & about 90 minutes, you will be able to catch the release and pop the hood (Bonnet). It's about the equivalent of picking a lock for the first time

wrap the cable with some electrical tape and shove it into its holder above the radiator and fan. then land the cable in its carrier release and bind it with a tiny zip-tie.

There is no easy way to do this and you will have to be patient and diligent, but as soon as you catch it the hood will pop up instantly.

Btw, prop open a door as you may set off the anti-theft alarm!!.

The A6 is one of the hardest cars to break into, and this is just to get the hood open! If you find yourself in a position like me, (tired of mechanics and poor work) take your time and it will be worth it.

It may also help to check out this link as most Audi's have the exact same locking mechanism for the hood:

Hope this all helps & please remember to rate my solution, Kind Regards, Paul

When i pull bonet release,feelsvery lose and will not open bonnet,how do I adjust,??

i believe the cable snapped. check to determine if the cable is attatched to the handle. if the cable has snapped there , use pliers to pull the cable. if its broken further up the line, you'll have to get under the front and try to release the latch. you may also be able to access the latch from the grill

Audi a4 bonnet release mechanism broken

This can be over come by getting a pair of vise grips and gripping the cable that is sticking out and pulling it out, once you have opened it Do not attempt to close the hood without replacing the cable. You have maybe only one chance at this so if you don't succeed you will make it harder for a mechanic to fix it. a new cable is not to difficult to replace, buy the cable and housing replace both.
