Hi everyone , those of you who have been into bonnet catch problems might be able to help me on this one. I thought at first all that was needed was lubing but it looks like the cable has too much movement and prevents the catch mechanism from returning to a catching position so I am thinking there should be a cable restraint somewhere missing, because getting under the 147 bonnet slam seems inaccessable, its difficult to see whats missing, if at all. The cable is held under the spring in the catch mechanism but the whole cable is pulled towards the catch when you open the bonnet but then gets held there so disallowing the catch to return to rest for closing operations.
Has anyone had this in bits or remembered anything about how its held,on the 156 there is a special plastic guide linking the cable fro the inner wheel arch to under the nearside slam panel. The 147 or this 147 does not perhaps this is the bit I am looking for?
