Lift the bonnet!

Postby Fran » 18 Mar 2006, 11:44

Hi All, What can you do if the bonnet lift is stuck?

I have tried everything I can think of and just not sure what to try next??

Any suggestions would be great :D

stick your arm behind the valence from underneath, find the cable that goes to the bonnet release and pull it hard, this should release the bonnet, mine did it all the time until i replaced the cable
Before you say anything..... no i cant spell or type!

The post above is my own personal opinion, it is not meant to upset or cause offence, if it does bugger off.

You might try getting someone to push the bonnet down & the front while you pull the handle inside. It takes the pressure off the catch!

Oh yeah, thats a good idea.. I managed it, it was bloody tuff and cracked all me fingers!! but got a proper look now...
The panel I need to weld will be pretty easy, but the engine has alot of oil leaks so more incentive to get shut for a nice XE me thinks!
Cheers guys! :D
