Hi
I have a fault with the hood working. The tensioning cable has snapped/broken and the boot divider warning each time. The last time I almost didn’t get the hood to shut, so I saw not use it again.
The tensioning cable on the right hand side has snapped or come away from the end where it was attached to.
I been quoted £60 to replace the cable however, just spoke to hood repair specialist and he says something else (electrical perhaps) has caused the tensioning cable to snap)
They change £60 just to look at it.
what do you think I should do, I don’t want to replace the tensioning cable only for it to snap off again.
Thanking you all in advance

Someone also mentioned it could be the gas strut need replacing. Could this be the issue?
