Question about 2004 Volkswagen Golf
I cannot find the bonnet release on my VW Golf tdi diesal 2004
ridiculous but true!
On mine, a RHD, it is a plastic lever just forward of the door post. It is a crappy piece of plastic about four inches long.Mine has recently broken and will result in a bill for about £60-70 for replacing the lever and the cable (the cable is very tight)
Getting the handle off was a hell of a job until someone spotted that inside the handle, on the lower part as accessed from the outside, is a clip that needs to be pulled out to release the handle. Only then could we reach the cable and that took an enourmopus amount of effirt to release the bonnet.
As the mechanic said, "I didn't expect this sort of rubbish from VW"

On my golf,
long dead of truckbackupitis, the hood release was a plate in the left footwell wall about 4inch forward of the drivers door, it does not look like a handle, just like a cover plate
