SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: renault clio bonnet wont open

Get a second person to pull bonnet catch and you push up and down on the bonnet whilst catch is being pulled. 1, cable possibly stretched, 2, look at bonnet catch under the coloum to see if wire is attached, 3, try and lie under car and look up the back of the bulkhead to see the catch and release it manually. Hope that helps.

remove the o/s/f indicator this can be done by putting a thin screw driver between the bonnet and wing to push the indicator release tab down. once the indicator is out of the way you can see the bonnet catch behind the headlamp use a torch to locate where the cable should be and pull the latch towards you. it should take you about 10 mins to do this

Front bonnet catch wont release fully,i pull lever from inside and it releases bonnet just a couple inch, then when try to lift bonnet up it wont open. regards mike, and thanks in advance


There is another lever at the front of the car that you need to release too. This is to prevent the hood flying open if you accidentally pull the release while driving. After you release the latch inside the car, go to the front of the car, near the Audi rings in the center of the grill there is a small black tab that pops out. Pull up on it and the hood will open. Let us know if that worked.

Im having a problem opening my hood on my 2000 land rover dis 1


You don't specify whether its just that you can't find the release catch, or whether the release catch is stuck / broken,

In the UK (Right hand drive car) the release catch is situated in the left (passenger side) footwell, within about a foot of the lower front door hinge. In a Left Hand Drive car, I guess this would be reversed (i.e. right hand side footwell). Pull, and it semi releases the hood. Next, walk to the front of the car, pull the hood up about 1" and insert your fingers about a foot left of center. Sweep to the right, and you'll release the secondary catch and the hood will be open.

However, if its stuck / broken, then ......

You need to work underneath the front of the vehicle - the idea is to get at the catch and release it with a long screwdriver flicking the catch to open the bonnet -or getting a grip of the cable if it is hanging loose ( i.e. broken ) then getting a grip of the cable with mole grips or even pliers - to pull and release the cable / bonnet.

Once the bonnet is open - you can deal with renewing the cable assembly, or greasing it thoroughly.

I just got a Landrover Discovery 1991 V8. Tried to open the bonnet release, but no joy. How can I open the bonnet if the release cable is Kaput? Any help gratefully received


Try to put a screwdriver from the front plastic grille, up to the lock mechanism and move it to open the mechanism. If the bonnet has opened slightly , then you need assistance. One person to try to lift the bonnet and another to push the bonnet from side to side.. Unfortunately its not possible to remove the front grille to gain access to the lock without braking the plastic grille, as there are screws holding it to the top valance.

MY VAUXHAL ZAFIRA BONNET NOT OPENING


Do you feel any resistance when you pull the lever? If not, your cable is diconnected, probably behind the lever. If you feel resistance, your latch may not be functioning... may have to manually release through front grille.

Bonnet cable snapped, need advice on how to open bonnet


Most of the time the cable snaps at the release handle. If you remove the handle and get the end of the cable, you can cut off the cable jacket and use needle nose pliers or vise grips to grab the cable and pull to release bonnet.
