Re: Bonnet release cable Scenic Fidji
Hi ephumuris, I think you're right in that if the cable had snapped it should still shut properly and not open.
Only thing I can think of is either the catch needs greasing or something is stuck around that area? I've also notice that if I open my bonnet whilst parked on my drive (bit of an incline), the bonnet will not shut first time unless I pull the catch from between the grille out... anywhere else and it shuts perfect.
