SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: The bonnet cable has gone

Get someone to try and lift the bonnet whilst you pull the cable and see if that helps!.

SOURCE: this car is a 1.6 16v renault megane, the bonnet

hi,
If the cable is snapped in your car, then get underneath the car.Try to reach the catch and flip it manually.If you are unable to reach it with bare hands, a bent metal hanger would help to do it.Now,open the bonnet. You can reach the parts in bonnet now. If you are uncomfortable or unable to do it, please call a "Repair person" in the nearest locality to help you.Have a nice day.Please rate my solution as helpful.

Bonnet relese wih no cable at all completeley snapped off not a shred at bonnet end


usually down to a snapped cable usually seized mechanism and it is fairly easy to get the bonnet up, first if you look up under the front of the bonnet you can see the two bolts that hold it in place, then using a ratchet, extension, universal joint and a 13mm socket you can undo the bolts and lift the bonnet enough to then release the catch or cable, it can be a bit tricky to do,Also the cables have a habit of coming off the release handle, if you remove the handle held on by 2x 10mm bolts and see if it is still attached. i am going off a fiat as i do not know what car it is,

1996 BMW 740il bonnet will not open on driver's side, have replaced cable for the bonnet, help


REMOVE THE FRONT KIDNEY EMBLEM, GET A DENTAL HOOK FROM HARBOR FREIGHT, AND TUG ON THE OPEN SPOT WHERE YOU CAN SEE THE ACTUAL CABLE, THIS WILL ACTIVATE THE LATCH TO OPEN. GO TO THE JUNKYARD TO PRACTICE ON AN ALREADY OPEN ONE SO YOU KNOW WHERE IT IS.

I cannot open the bonnet from the lever in the car,it has broken off.any ideas how to open the bonnet otherwise,many thanks


Hello
We had a 2001 ford 1 ton diesel with the same issue. The plastic hand knob had snapped off. fortunetly we were able to grab onto the cable with a pair of vise grips and pull on the cable enough. Needless to say the entire mechanism was replaced right away. See if there is some way that you can grab onto the release cable and give it a good yank
cheers

Bonnet cable brook on bmw 3 series


Okay, so the hood latch cable on your BMW 3 series has broken. Normally the cable itself will snap and a you can purchase a new cable that can be threaded through the casing and reconnected to the hood latch. You will need to get the hood open, so hopefully there will be some access to the hood latch mechanism from underneath the front of the vehicle.
