Wow now thats good one ,it depends where its broke of course as this vehicle has two locks ,but if its broke under the dash on the pull handle then a pair of pliars on the end of the cable will open it ,now as their are two cables they pull from a central point which could be under the dash but iam not sure as i have not had to sort one out as yet ,,worse comes to the worse then its a coat hanger from underneath the car ,Now some of these vehicles have one long cable with a connection for the first lock then cable continues to the farthest lock ,Just been out to garage to look at my XJ6 and my model a 1994 has two cables ,remove the trim under the dash by the bonnet pull and see what you have as although i do have a manual it it not showing the bonnet pull mechanism ,best advice is take the trim off as stated and have a good look

Hi how can i release the valet on a 1995 xj6 jag, cause i cant open my trunk

The valet button is in the center console. You can also use the manual key (the black one) in the back key holder (located in the XJ6 label on the trunk), that will overide the electrical lock and you can open manually.

Good luck!

95 Jag XJ12 hood got buckled can't open the bonnet

Look under the inner guard right below where the release catches are ... there'sa rubber grommet each side that lets you get a long screwdriver or light pry-barin to release the hood catches. Get a mate to pull UP on the inner headlights at the same time( same as when you close the hood) this Should spring the hood enough to open .Then put a couple of pieces of rag (like a big fist)in each catct and SLAMthe hood down. May have to be done acouple of times to get it right....bones
