Re: Bonnet Release

best bet is to take it to a small garage and get them to shove thier arm up into the engine bay and release it from inside.
its one of those real PITA jobs where u really need to be standing under the car to do it right
shouldnt cost more than 20 to get them to do it. and it wont result in new dents inthe bonnet.

don't forget to have the relacement main cable and secondary (if there is one) with you when you take the car in to get the bonnet opened, as the last thing u want is to close it after its been opened, before you replace the cables and fix the latches.
good luck
Currently in mord's garage:
