GTV bonnet issues AGAIN!!!
Hi folks, 3.0L GTV 1997. Bonnet release not releasing. Have seen other threads on this but either I am pretty dim or you all have other varients to me. The release inside the car has no tension on it. Have released the cable from the pull release and tried plyers and pulled like hell and no release. Had ANO pushing bonnet down still no release. Called Autolusso to be told that the emergency cable release was the same as the cable release!!! So no further forward.
Can't get at it from underneath as the rad is in the way plus all the underneath trim. (well I certainly can't see how underneath is the way in to the cable which i cant see in any case)
Long story as to why but have the drivers side headlight removed so access via that is possible but again rad is in the way and arm not long enough anyway.
I can't believe that its not possible to pop a bonnet in some way without a huge crowbar ripping the bonnet off. but as it sits, its no bloody good at all as i can't lift the bonnet to do much needed work. Any sensible suggestions most welcome. Thanks - John
Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes, the ones who see things differently, they're not fond of rules.You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things, they push the human race forward and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do
