Pull the lever/handle and then gently tap on either side of it. The issue is that you need to lubricate the locking mechanism.

you need to take a coat hanger & bend it to fit in the front of the car & pull the latch. I know it's vague but it needs to happen. Or,check to see if the cable broke at the inside latch release & grab the end with a vise grip & pull.

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.

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.

If my cable to open the bonnet has snapped how do i open my bonnet


depends on where it snapped.
If it is accessible under the dash, clamp some vice-grips on it and pull.
If it is broken somewhere under the bonnet it gets a lot trickier as you'll need to find a way to trip the latch. Reply as a comment if we need to explore that.

You will need to reach up from underneath and either locate the latch and pull it or grip the cable near the latch and pull that to try and release the bonnet catch!

How can I get someone to fix a hood latch that won't open?


I have seen instances like this and it was the cable that leads from the hood release latch to the lever that operates the bonnet that is worn out. If it's 2001 or older crv, try pushing the latch forward while having someone moving the bonnet in an open and close motion. If it's a 2002 or later model....makes sure the release latch it in the pull position the have someone try to yank open the bonnet....it's better to repair a bent hook/lever than to cut the entire bonnet off.

Best of luck,
Romone.

Front bonnet catch wont release fully,i pull lever from inside and it releases bonnet just a couple inch, then when try to lift bonnet up it wont open. regards mike, and thanks in advance


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. Pull up on it and the hood will open. Let us know if that worked.

S420 mercedes can not open the hood cable and latch working .there any other locked beside the latch somebody help me please thank


have some one press down on the bonnet while you pull the cable knob as sometimes the adjustment makes it difficult to pull hard enough to undo the latch. If that works then adjust the latch before closing the bonnet

The Bonnet wont open on my Ford Focus 2001, The key will turn but nothing happens? When I Try and lift Bonnet the catch is just stuck.


Have someone push down on the hood (Bonnet)
and have another person pull the inside level,to get it
open when it's stuck. Once open,spray some lubricating spray all over the latch mechanism to help
it stop hanging up,unless the spring is broken,or weak.Good luck.

I have a bmw320 the bonnet release handle wont open the bonnet, the handle is ok still has the cable on, how do i open the bonnet??


Did you try with 2 people. one guy pushes down on the hood and then pulls up after the other pulls and holds the release.
Grease the latch every so often to prevent this.
