SOURCE: opening of bonnet

If you pop your Vw emblem out of its hole, right behind it there's a thin notch cut into the support for the hood latch. If you look inside there with a flashlight you should be able to make out the shiny silver ball that's the end of the cable. Now stick a small flat head screwdriver against it and push to your right. Sometimes it may help to push down a little on the hood just above the mechanism, as you no longer have the mechanical advantage of the lever. Good luck hope this helps.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: cant open bonnet on my vauxhall astra 1.4

the bonnet is held down with a spring thats constantly under tension. to get the bonnet open you have to remove one side of the tension where the spring connects to the slam panel. put your hand in the grille and feel for where the spring goes into the slam panel, and use something like a tyre lever put through the grille hole to pop the spring away from the slam panel, thus releasing the tension. you should be able to just pull the bonnet up. my corsa has just done the same thing and this is the only way i could get into it.

SOURCE: Fiat Spider wide rims

Check the clearance with your current tires. Turn your wheels as far as they will go and measure the gap between the rim and frame. Then measure the inside offset from your regular rims and subtract that from the inside offset on the mags.Compare that to the gap between your current rim and frame. If it is the same or bigger, the new rims will likely hit.
The best way to know for sure is to mount one rim and turn the wheel and see what happens. Hope this helps.

How to open zetec bonnet with a broken pull lever

From the bottom. Few times have I seen it broke at the latch. Reach up and cut the cable in half( as far as you can away from the latch). Then cut a couple inches of the cable sheathing of at the latch side. expose the cable, then pull the cable to open. If it did break at the latch, then you'll need a long pick(right angle or hook). You'll have to reach up in the latch to grab the arm to release the bonnet.

Missfire on cylinder 2 and can't open bonnet - Fiat Bravo '01

There are other, professional ways to get the bonnet open without having to break anything. Have someone push down on the hood a bit while someone else pulls on the release. If that doesnt work, you can get behind the grill and access the release by going under grill, find hood latch and pull release.
The misfire can be a number of things. Check for spark,Install a spark tester between spark plug and wire. If there is no spark, check wire, module, coil. If there is spark, check plug, Perform a compression check.

Bonnet will not open as clip on bonnet is gone. you can pop the bonnet from under stering but cant open it with the clip. 2004 passat TDI

Depending upon how familiar you might be with the location of the under-hood release, you may be able to access it through the small opening between the hood and grill that follows opening the bonnet by pulling the lever under the steering wheel. A long narrow standard head screwdriver and a good light may be all that is required. That is exactly how the mechanic at the VW garage will release the hood latch.

If your not at all familiar with the hood latch, it might be useful to view the mechanism in another Passat so that you know how it functions. Less than a 5 minute job, but the dealer will likely charge about $65 to perform the task, substantially more to replace the broken mechanism.
