Hi all,

When trying to open the bonnet over the weekend the release cable snapped!

No matter what I tried I could not open the bonnet.

Anyone know any tricks for this?

Is is difficult to replace the snapped cable?

Thanks in advance,

Les

Have a look under the car at the front to see if there is room to get a bar up to the top to release the catch.

If the way dec says does not work, then removing two of the slats on the grill is one way, they are not that expensive to replace
