If you can get the bonnet open , probably not as the panels will spring hack a fraction
slamming it back down may do the trick

    I just dont want to get stuck if the hood cant come back down

    getting it back down will not be a problem
    holding it closed will be so you may have to use rope or wire to hold it down

SOURCE: cable for hood latch on mini cooperS R56 broken.

Welcome to Fixya

You can use vise grips and grab the cable to unlatch it. Or you can open hood lever on passenger side, then to open slide fingers into gap between light and grill drivers side feel or look for lever (yellow) push or pull up to open.

Thank you for using Fixya!

SOURCE: damaged plastic liner of wheel well rubs on tire when driving over bumps

Even if you popped the dent out, the liner may not fit back on tightly. They are usually held by plastic clips or plastic pins or even plastic screws that easily get distorted, or the hole they are held with gets enlarged from tearing. You could keep the liner up with a couple of machine screws drilled into strategic places....or, you could just remove the liner-it's not a safety issue-it just helps keep mud and dirt from building up in the wheel wells and fender corners. To remove it, first take the wheel off. Then you can see how it is held on Pull it off and throw it away.
If you pop the dent out and fender looks pretty good, and the liner appears it can be re-used with just a little help, all the better.
It;s up to you.

Is driver airbag still functional when passenger airbag light is on in a 2010 Chevy malibu?


Hello Collette,

(Owner Manual Page 2-68)
The passenger sensing system turns off the right front
passenger frontal airbag and seat-mounted side
impact airbag under certain conditions. The driver
airbags and the roof-rail airbags are not affected by the
passenger sensing system.
The passenger sensing system works with sensors that
are part of the right front passenger seat. The sensors
are designed to detect the presence of a properly-seated
occupant and determine if the right front passenger
frontal airbag and seat-mounted side impact airbag
should be enabled (may inflate) or not.

I'm not sure if a purse or other light weight objects would activate the passenger airbag but if your display is showing random passenger activation it would be best to have a qualified dealer check into it...better safe than sorry.

the horn on a 2001 chevy mailbu is located behind the passenger side front fender. you need to remove the dust cover from the bottom of the fender in front of the tire to gain access to the horn(s) there should be 2 horns.

Hello, I wonder if you can help.I cannot open the A4 bonnet, the release for the bonnet seems to have failed at the bonnet,so it will not open the primary release. Is there a mannual lever, or dose the...


Under the car:
You will be able to open the hood if you pull off your splash guard and use a long long flat head screwdriver or something like that. You'll see the hood latch in front of the radiator with the cable attached to it at the top near the hood, put it on the drivers side edge of the bottom of the latch and pry to the passenger side, the lever moves from the drivers side to the passengers side, the cable basically pulls the top of it to achieve this. so your doing the same thing on the bottom with the screwdriver.

Release the latch from underneath by the lever that you have to pry towards the passenger side. Then open the hood, and replace the safety release mechanism broken cable.

Please do rate my response. Thanks!

2000 Chevy Cavalier will not start after accident


there is a g force sensor in the fender. there is a fuel shutoff system in place to shut off the fuel pump in case of an accident on most newer cars.
i would call gm and ask if that is the case with your car.
same thing applies if the airbags are deployed.

2000 Chevrolet Malibu LS airbag problems


The passenger side airbag is a lot easier then driver side. Take the glove box out and you will see two 10mm bolts holding it in place. When you open the passenger side front door, remove the panel on the side of the dash and you will see yellow connectors.The 1 closest to the front is attached to the air bag, it is clipped into the frame. Just pull it loose and take it out and your done. For the Driver side, it takes a skinny T27 to remove the two star bolts, then just disconnect the horn red clip and ground and install new airbag. The module is located under the passenger seat, underneath the carpet. Kinda stupid but thats where its at. You also need to replace the front impact sensor located behind the grille on the back side of the metal bar to each side. Follow the hood latch down. Also just to make sure, you know to disconnect the battery before you do all this. You don't want new airbags to accidentally deploy.
