How do I open the bonnet of my 2009 bow 740? Tried banning on it with someone pulling lever as advised by RAC but no joy


Provided there is still resistance felt in the lever indicating that the cable is still intact have someone put one hand on the bonnet between the grill and the left head light and the other hand in the same place next to the right headlight and while pushing down on the bonnet in these two locations then have someone pull on and hold the lever up then release your weight from the bonnet and try pulling up whilst the person is holding open the lever, if it opens the two bonnet latches need lubricating.

1996 BMW 740il bonnet will not open on driver's side, have replaced cable for the bonnet, help


REMOVE THE FRONT KIDNEY EMBLEM, GET A DENTAL HOOK FROM HARBOR FREIGHT, AND TUG ON THE OPEN SPOT WHERE YOU CAN SEE THE ACTUAL CABLE, THIS WILL ACTIVATE THE LATCH TO OPEN. GO TO THE JUNKYARD TO PRACTICE ON AN ALREADY OPEN ONE SO YOU KNOW WHERE IT IS.

I have a bmw320 the bonnet release handle wont open the bonnet, the handle is ok still has the cable on, how do i open the bonnet??


Did you try with 2 people. one guy pushes down on the hood and then pulls up after the other pulls and holds the release.
Grease the latch every so often to prevent this.

Bonnett release lever will not open bonnet series 3 bmw


The cable is routed from the lever to the drivers side fender where there is a box mechanism. There, 2 cables are pulled by the release cable and each runs to a latch on the corners. It sounds like you only released one of the latches. Trace back to the box where the cable splits.

MY VAUXHAL ZAFIRA BONNET NOT OPENING


Do you feel any resistance when you pull the lever? If not, your cable is diconnected, probably behind the lever. If you feel resistance, your latch may not be functioning... may have to manually release through front grille.
