    Default Bonnet release problem

    my car is starting to get on my t1ts again. I need a new tyre, one of my back boxes is loose, my breaks are grinding and now today i go to check my oil and fill my washers to find the bonnet wont open and its like the cable has snapped because the handle has moved back from where it normally sits.

    I have had probs where i have had to get karen to pull the lever while i bounced the bonnet.

    any idea how i could fix this or is it a dealer job.

    No harm in trying, first thing you need to do is get the dam thing open. This thread might help, am sure it will then just be a case of running a new cable through.

    Pull the bonnet up (as opposed to bounce) as you normally would whilst someone else pulls the lever inside the cabin - this should pop it open for you. Then adjust cable as described in that thread
