SOURCE: Bonnet latch will not open and bonnet is in closed position

the cable connecting the handle to the latch is broken. remove the front grille and access the latch assembly. you will be able to release by hand and then replace the cable.

SOURCE: The pass. side bonnet catch will not release and open the bonnet.

Have someone lift on the bonnet while you pull the release handle.

Replace the bonnet latch


you need to first check if the fault is the bonnet release cable or the latch if you cant get the bonnet open try to apply pressure to the release cable and have an assistant apply light pressure to the underside of the bonnet front lip once you get the bonnet open spray heaps of penetrating lubricant into the latch and try to operate it (without closing the bonnet )a few times that will usually free them up always lube the latch when servicing if it cannot be freed up you should be able to see the 10 mm headed bolts that retain the latch inn place

My BMW 1 series keeps saying the bonnet is open when its not, and the alarm keeps flashing up on the dash. Any help?.


Check the bonnet pin (small switch that is pushed in and out by the bonnet opening and closing) which tells the computer if the bonnet is open or close, maybe its faulty or broken and the computer thinks the open is always open even though its closed.

Bonnett light on and screen wash for front not working - happened at the same time....what is wrong


Open the bonnet and check the wiring and connctor plug that go to the bonnet lock on the front of the car.If everything checks out ok,try replacing the bonnet lock.The lock has a micro switch built into it and when the bonnet is open the wipers and washer will not work,so even though your bonnet is closed,the switch is probably faulty and thats why you bonnet light is on.cheers and good luck

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.
