Re: Bonnet stuck scenic y reg

Maybe the cable just needs that extra few millemetres of pull to 'release' if the cable is stretching. When you pull the interior lever can you see the inner cable? With a helper holding the lever at its furthest point of travel could you grip the inner cable with a pair of pilers or other strong grips to give the cable this 'extra' fraction of pull.
