Bonnet Cable Fault Symptoms & Problems

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.
