    My bonnet won’t open

    Hi there Im having a problem getting my bonnet open and wondered if anyone out there has had the same problem.

    The bonnet release lever seems to be working but it wont release the mechanism to open the bonnet and not really sure what to do next.
    There is no warning light or anything like that ie it’s not a faulty sensor, just seems to be a mechanical problem?

    Look forward to hearing from anyone out there who may be able to help.

    Freddy.

    Have you tried having a helper push down on the bonnet while you work the release lever? Maybe pushing down in a pulsing motion will cause it to release, while you have the lever held back. Or have them pull up on the bonnet with the lever held back.

    Just a thought.

    Just wanted to say I did what you suggested and managed to open the bonnet today. Thanks for your help.
    It keeps on jamming every time I shut it so will have it looked at when I get it serviced soon but at least I can open it now.
    nce again thanks very much for your help.

    Cheers
    Freddy
