Replace it.... buy a new cable assembly and install it (unless, of course, that's not exactly what's wrong with it). You say it keeps 'coming out'... tell you what, take a photo of 'where it's coming out' and perhaps we will be able to help you.

Can you tell me how to install my release cable & handle on town & country1995


Do you mean bonnet release? If so loosen cable/wire by bonnet catch make sure it's free of any cable ties and clips, and is loose. Also inside vehicle try to remove any type of covering behind bonnet lever/handle, then undo any clips pins or nuts that hold handle in place. If you securely attach some wire or strong string to the end of the cable under the bonnet, and carefully pull it into the vehicle, disconnect old cable attach new, then pull it back into the engine compartment. Your cable should be in place ready for reattaching the lever, and bonnet catch.

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.

My bonnet on my BMW e36 wont close fully so it is flush to the wings like it is suppose to, is there anyway i can adjust the bonnet to make it be fully closed and flush to the rest of the car many thanks...


My bonet on my 1 series wont close properly it doesnt appear to be catching in the release lock although the mechanisim is working when I press down on it manually. The bonnet is only staying shut because the opener catch/hook is working, but this is the only thing holding it closed.

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.

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.

Hyundai excel 96. Bonnet Cable broken


difficult one but not surmountable,need right tools to remove grille and find a way into bottom of catch ,suggest you call your local mobile mechanic as this sort of thing is hands on and without car in front of me its difficult to advise as iam a general mechanic with a bad case of old timers.but most likely cause is the outer cable has pulled through the end fastening but what end ?? as i wrote its a hands on job.
