How to open the volvo s40 from outside bettery


You need to release the bonnet from the release catch under by the steering wheel. Normally Red in colour. You need to pull it towards you.
When you go to the bonnet it should be slightly raised up. Put your hand in the middle and there should be a small handle catch for you to push to one side . you should be able to pull the bonnet up then.

How do u open the bonnet please?


Under the passengers side of the dashboard you will find a red lever. Pull this for stage one. Then lift the bonnet slightly and on the right-hand side slide your hand in to feel a lever. Lift the lever to release the bonnet.

92 Lexus 400 Cannot open engion hood how is it done


Pull the hood button under the dash. Lift the bonnet slightly and under the opening will be a lever near the lock that either goes sideways or down to release the bonnet latch. This is a safety device that prevents the bonnet from flying back over the windscreen if the bonnet has not been properly shut.

Bentley gt bonnet release


Pop opens the hood
Pull or push the hood release until you heard the hood pop opening whether the hood release is inside your vehicle. However, you need to look anywhere for 2013 Bentley Continental GT W12 and through the grill, carefully feel under the grill and finally behind the bumper to find a lever, arm, button or handle if the hood release is apparently at the front. And then press, pull or push it from the front to back, side to side until finally it can release the hood.
Even though the hood will just open a tiny, it will possibly be stopped by a safety catch which is a metal lever. You should release the hood when you pressed one way or other in order to open all the way. When you are driving, this gizmo accidentally avoids opening the hood.
Raise the hood fast with one hand
Feel along the station between the grill and the hood for the safety catch with the other hand. The rest of the way is to release and raise the hood.
If it is necessary, secure the hood
It is fine if the hood can stay up easily all by itself for 2013 Bentley Continental GT W12. Only if it does not like that, you should have to find a hoop prop which is a thin and long metal rod attached to the bottom edge of the opening hood or to the underside of the hood. In other words, either lift or lower the rod and fit the finishing of it into the slot which is provided to hold it.

Im having a problem opening my hood on my 2000 land rover dis 1


You don't specify whether its just that you can't find the release catch, or whether the release catch is stuck / broken,

In the UK (Right hand drive car) the release catch is situated in the left (passenger side) footwell, within about a foot of the lower front door hinge. In a Left Hand Drive car, I guess this would be reversed (i.e. right hand side footwell). Pull, and it semi releases the hood. Next, walk to the front of the car, pull the hood up about 1" and insert your fingers about a foot left of center. Sweep to the right, and you'll release the secondary catch and the hood will be open.

However, if its stuck / broken, then ......

You need to work underneath the front of the vehicle - the idea is to get at the catch and release it with a long screwdriver flicking the catch to open the bonnet -or getting a grip of the cable if it is hanging loose ( i.e. broken ) then getting a grip of the cable with mole grips or even pliers - to pull and release the cable / bonnet.

Once the bonnet is open - you can deal with renewing the cable assembly, or greasing it thoroughly.

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 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.
