Alfa Romeo 147 Bonnet/hood release issue!
I have a major issue with my bonnet release - it has snapped off! This is the red plastic lever in the footwell of the car, not the safety catch under the bonnet. I have figured out how to open the bonnet with a pair of pliers yanking at the exposed cable, but a) I can't sell the car in this condition and b) the rest of the plastic housing looks flimsy and if it snaps off too I am worried the cable will disappear.
I contacted my local dealership and they quoted me £2500 to replace the damn thing! Are they having me on?!?
