To open your bonnet or hood theres a lever on your left front kick panel or just on that panel under the steering wheel,once the hood is released the outside hood release should be just under the hood near the rad support

Cant open my bonnet on my audi a3 think cable is stretched need to check water oil etc


You need to see a dealer on this, the car needs to more than likely be on a car lift to reach the latch to release it.

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

Aston martin rapide battery has died and cant open the doors


When the battery goes flat on a rapide the windows are up. The doors are frameless so the windows are located in the seals in the door aperture. You cannot open the doors and you cannot open the boot. Look through the front grille towards the radiator with a torch and you will see the bonnet release cable outer sheath. If you pull the outer sheath it will put enough tension on the cable to release the bonnet catch. With the bonnet open you can charge the battery. Negative clip on the alternator casing and positive clip on the central charging stud.

I cant find the lever to open my bonnet .its not under the steering column where the manual says it is. we recently had dual controls fitted, is there another way to open the bonnet? Its a peugeot 1007.


Hi sometimes they are right up behind the dash, get on your knees and look up behind it. the only other way is to get under the front of the car with a pair of pliers and try to pull the bonnet release cable.

As the car had Duel controls they may have moved it to the passenger side.

Bonnet release in grill broke renault megane scenic


when you say the bonnet has been pushed in do you mean like in a traffic accident if this is the case then is your grill damaged,the reason i say this is the only way you are going to open your bonnet is through your grill so a replacement grill will be needed.if you take this course of action,take a torch and look up under the bonnet you will se the bonnet realease at the very front of your bonnet it will have the bonnet realease cable attached you might need help at this stage,get a friend to push down on your bonnet,put your hand in and push or pull the lever until it releases as this works on a hook system and with the damage it might need a pretty stronge screwdriver to force it always remember the radiator is very easly damaged and very costly to replace .Hope this will help you get your bonnet open .adrian
