    Bonnet help!!

    Hey guys..

    Tried to open my bonnet today and the pull leaver isn't doing anything.

    Can anyone give any ideas on how to open it without the leaver? i've tried pushing down on the front while someone pulls the leaver but nothing.. the cable is still connected.

    anything would be a help.

    disconnect the cable in the car and pull it with some mole grips, if that dosnt work you might have to cut your grill out unless you have a lot of room around the radiator area of the engine bay and are able to get access under neath, mines a zlet with a big intercooler so this was not an option for me!

    the cable has come off the latch so cant do that, thought of that already.. got the grill out so will force the latch open that way
