The bonnet cable should be a 2 piece system,trace the cable from the lock and you should find the join,undo and try again to lock manually with a screwdriver.possibly the cable could be siezed.

How do I open the bonnet of my 2009 bow 740? Tried banning on it with someone pulling lever as advised by RAC but no joy


Provided there is still resistance felt in the lever indicating that the cable is still intact have someone put one hand on the bonnet between the grill and the left head light and the other hand in the same place next to the right headlight and while pushing down on the bonnet in these two locations then have someone pull on and hold the lever up then release your weight from the bonnet and try pulling up whilst the person is holding open the lever, if it opens the two bonnet latches need lubricating.

Cant open bonnet on a vw golf as the standard mechanism has broken need an alternative method to open it


inside the car cut the covering back on the release cable to expose the wire release cable, with a pair of locking pliers (Vise Grips) pull that inner wire while someone pushes down over the hood latch area, that is what we try 1st in the shop, most times that does it.

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.

1995 chevrolet 2500 4x4 driver door latch operation can't shut do


I think you need to replace the latch assm. The 2 arms that grab the peg are spring loaded and if those springs break the arms won't grab. First try holding the outside door handle in the 'open' position and with your finger or a screwdriver see if you can release the 2 arms. If you can, but they fall back down, then they don't have any spring tension. With your frozen 'lock', if you mean the door lock cylinder you can try spraying wd-40 into it to lubricate it. Also, if your key is worn that may cause the lock cylinder to bind. Hope this helps.

2004 Golf


Hi, I doubt it will help as mine was a 1993 Mk 3. Your 2004 model could be a Mk 4 or a Mk 5, and they will certainly be different from mine, and probably from each other. Have you checked the inside of the fuse box lid for info - it might be there...
Hope this helps, D.
