When you pull on the handle to release the bonnet is there resistance or does the handle just flop

If there is resistance get one of your pals to repeatedly press firmly on the bonnet as you pull on the handle this may dislodge the locking mechanism

If not it is a strip down by taking out the grill etc to reach the underside of the bonnet lock

Ps

Is the bonnet fully shut or is it sprung about an 20mm if so try getting your fingers underneath it and lift.

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.

I need to open the bonnet of a 2004 Honda crv sports. I cannot get inside the car as I was in the process of replacing a flat battery and the car was locked when the bonnet was accidentally closed. So, no...


May have to get a battery powered sawzall and cut the latch that keeps the bonnet closed with a metal cutting blade. Then, go to a salvage yard and replace that part.

Good luck on this repair.

Bonnett light on and screen wash for front not working - happened at the same time....what is wrong


Open the bonnet and check the wiring and connctor plug that go to the bonnet lock on the front of the car.If everything checks out ok,try replacing the bonnet lock.The lock has a micro switch built into it and when the bonnet is open the wipers and washer will not work,so even though your bonnet is closed,the switch is probably faulty and thats why you bonnet light is on.cheers and good luck

Ant open bonnet


Hopefully the cable has not snapped. Have someone else lean on the bonnet a little. (Not too much or you will dent it) Try and operate the catch while they are leaning and releasing. Or sometimes dust can accumulate on the catch. Perhaps you can spray under the bonnet with a can of WD40 and hit the catch. Try the above trick again after you have sprayed it. Once you get it open find the cause before you close it again :)
