Bonnet Cable

What is a Bonnet Cable?
The bonnet cable is a simple part that effectively just connects up the manual bonnet opening level in the car cabin to the locking mechanism on the bonnet. Generally you just pull the lever, the cable is pulled and this causes the lock to release and the bonnet pops up.

These cables can wear out, stretch etc like bike brake cables so they need to be checked occasionally and replaced when required.
What problems can be caused by this part?

Bonnet does not open or shut correctly and / or does not stay open

When opening the bonnet it gets stuck or won't hold its weight when attempting to open. When fully open the bonnet won't hold it's full weight and drops to close.

How much does it cost to replace the Bonnet Cable?
A bonnet cable can cost from around £10
