1997 toyota hilux broken bonnet release how to open bonnet

i assume you have tried pulling the cable including the outer insulator, then next step is from the front left corner of the bonnet!!:using a long 90 degree needle nose pliers,grab the black insulator and move towards the wing (important to only access here otherwise radiator/condensor can be damaged, if this fails then the end of cable BALL is broken! . access thru behind the grille FROM UNDER THE VEHICLE (locate the cable entry hole on the bracket, the release lever is onthe blind side of it ) good luck, tricky but a good pen flash light will be very useful. once open relace cable and TEST MECHANISM AND OPERATION without closing bonnet!

Volvo V40 (1998) headlight problem. I have no headlights, specifically no low beam. They were working on the way into work but not when I went to leave. If I flash them they work. I have sidelights and...


Basically when you car starts to give faults like this, then you need to understand that a fuse might have blown so when you try to control the headlight, it might not come up. Also another cause for such problem is the alternator.

Run a check on both the fuses and the alternator, before working on any. Once you detect the problem, then you can have an easy fix. But in any case it might be out of the two, they are both easy to fix.

For Fuse, all you have to do is to open up the bonnet and reach for the fuse box and replace any blown fuse.

Take care and good luck

The bonnet release cable on my volvo s40 s-reg has broken with the bonnet can i release the bonnet without causing damage to the car and what is it that i'm looking for to release the bonnet

there is a cable under the hod you need to grab and it is likely you will not know what to look for so save you self some migrane meds and take it over to the dealer pay a mechanic on his break 10 bucks to open the hood they can do it in 20 secs or if you are luckey look under the dash where the hood release is and see if you can see the end of the cable if yes grab it with a pair of plyers and pull if hood opens or cable doesnt mode than well it fell of and you now have a new problem that is still dealer related

Can not open the bonnet. The release by the drivers right knee does not seem to work, I can pull it but the latch by the radiator/grill does not seem to function. I have sprayed some WD40 onto the parts...

In order to get the hood/bonnet to open, you will have to grasp the end of the cable with pliers or better yet, vice grips, and pull the cable. But, you still need to figure out what is causing the problem. Check to see if the cable is broken or has simply come undone at the latch. You can try to find the cable where it comes through the firewall and trace it to the hood latch, looking to see if any clamps have loosened up that would allow the cable to move and get too much slack in it. Sure hope this helped you and good luck.

first of all not an easy job,you need to get the front grill off and look upwards for a cover that will be covering up the bonnet catch,basicly bend or pull this off,you should then see were the cable goes in,then you should be able to bar the catch with a screwdriver to release it. best of luck

Bonnet release cable is broken - how do I open the bonnet. A photo of where the catches are would help

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
