when i press the lever for the bonnet to come up it do's nothing but when someone else is there and they push down on the bonnet it works, so i have to have someone pushing down on it to work. do i need a new cable or what ????
open the bonnet, look on the underside of the bonnet, theres a rubber leg on each side, they can be screwed and unscrewed to make them longer or shorted.
screw them so their shorter, and try again, it should then work without having a friend push on it lol.
the latch also might be sticking, its basically 2x hooks of different heights. the first one is what your cable releases which the catch on the bonnet then lifts onto the 2nd hook which your release lever at the front moves out of the way. if the 1st one is sticking then the cable can't pull the 1st hook out of the way, a quick squirt with some wd40 sorts it out and keeping the hinge for both of the hooks covered in grease helps.
