    the sleeve mate. once you loosen the bracket. pull th cable and sleeve as far back to regain the tension. make sure you nip up the retaining bolt tight as the cable can slip

    Job done. Tools required 8mm spanner or socket and pair or pliers. Loosen 8mm nut, grip cable sleeve and pull towards n/s of car. Sleeve should move and tighten. Re-tighten 8mm nut and before dropping the bonnet check the bonnet catch still moves in the cabin.
