Re: bonnet release

Hello and welcome, this may or may not work but worth a try ...

1/ Get someone to sit in the car and keep the lever taught, then try and lift/ cajole the bonnet open, vary the amount of of "pull" on the lever.

2/ If that doesnt work then you can usually release the catch by using a very long screwdriver and working from under the car between the grille and the radiator attempt to flick the catch open (the bit that has the cable attached. Have someone helping by trying to lift the bonnet while you do this.)

Hope it helps ... good luck

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
