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.

How much does it cost to replace the Bonnet Cable?

Bonnet catch

The bonnet catch on my frontera won't release the bonnet. I have tried pushing down on it while someone pulls the leaver, no luck! Any ideas and I would be grateful as the battery is flat. Thank you...
