Re: Bonnet release handle

what usually happens is the cable's end pulls out of the handle because the cable is stuck. if you apply some WD40 to the cable to loosen it up it will prevent the problem recurring. often the cable can be simply reconnected to the handle, however if the handle has snapped where the cable conects you can get a handle from any scrapyard bravo brava or marea for less than the price of a pint.

Re: Bonnet release handle

open the bonnet using some pliers on the cable where the handle is. once open you will see the cable at the front of the engine bay. where the cable goes into the cable cover you need to spray wd40 in, and then work the cable back and forth using the pliers again until it feels easier to move.
