Another Bonnet problem on 147
I know this has been covered and covered a few more times.....
I have a 147 with a bonnet catch problem.
It started by not shutting properly, would go all the way down and then as soon as you drive along it would pop up, then got to the point where it seemed to be popped down okay. But obviously worried about it, went and checked it and low and behold the bonnet decided to pop open, during this time the bonnett release didnt feel like it was doing anything, very stiff!
Took it to a garage to have a look and they said your 'cable is broken/stretched' horrible job £200.... WHAT!!
So I drove away thinking about, got home and lubbed it with WD40.... now the catch works bonnet is well and truely locked down.... cant open it AAAHHHH.... the cable is very stiff but not able to pull the mechanism
Brings me to my point... how do you open the bonnet on a 147 without using the cable????
how do you know the cable is broken??
thanks in advance....
