How do you release the bonnet of a vauxhall vectra 04 from the outside ?


As a general rule, you don't.

However, if the inside handle is broken, sometimes you can reach up from under the front end of the vehicle and find the cable that leads to the release. IF you are lucky enough, you can pull on that cable and sometimes the hood (bonnet) will pop open.

Carnt open bonnet on my audi a4 2002 model, the realease pull works but doesent seem to release fully only a couple inch! any idea's anyone regards mike


There is another lever at the front of the car that you need to release too. This is to prevent the hood flying open if you accidentally pull the release while driving. After you release the latch inside the car, go to the front of the car, near the Audi rings, in the center of the grill there is a small black tab that pops out when the internal hood release is pulled. Pull up on it and the hood will open. Let us know if that works.

How do I get my bonnet to open the release cable has snapped


You can get a bonnet (hood) release at Dealers, some major autoparts stores and Salvage yards.

Carparts.com is good for Salvaged parts shipped to your door.

The How-to-do area is not always easy to determine. Best way is to go to a Salvage yard and view similar vehicles for how it goes together.

Sometimes you can sneak a socket between the grille features and undo the mounting bolts under the hood. These things are deliberately designed to provide security against theft.

I found some that had rear hinge bolts which could be undone with the hood in place. I found others where the grille could be removed with a phillips screwdriver from the front. Others as I mentioned required removing the mounting plate through the grille slots. The mounting plate had the intact lock mechanism on it and the hood opened with the mounting plate dangling, still locked in place.

Sometimes you have to sacrifice a cheap part to gain access. If the looks do not matter, break off parts of the grille.

Please rate my info.

My 2001 Pathfinder SE seems to have a broken hood release cable. When I pull the inside release handle under the left side of the dash, the hood does not release and the handle does not return to the...


Hi
Tricky one this.
If you cant reach up from underneath and, using a screwdriver, flick the catch you will probably have to try and remove the grille.
You will probably snap part of the grille so be carefull not to cause too much damage.
With the grill away you will have access to the bonnet catch.
I assume the cable clamp has come loose for some reason which has caused the outer cover to move with the cable.
Fit a ne clamp screw and clip.

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.
