I've put this in general as its more of a general question rather then model specific yet gain my bonnet cable has snapped
Got a flat battery and went to jump start it I asked somebody at work to hold the bonnet up as the struts are sometimes a bit weak and the bonnet shuts.i passed him the positive cable to attach to the jumping point and he let go off the bonnet slamming it down hard trapping the earth cable hanging out the front of the bumper dented my bonnet where the jump lead has been crushed between the bonnet and the engine.I couldn't believe it pull the bonnet cable I said he pulled it and it snapped at the bonnet end this time :-( managed to get my indicator out without breaking it to try get onto the cable no luck got the kidney grill out no luck ( looking a the car head on we got the right bonnet catch open its the left I can't get to open.the cable has completely come out.ended up getting stressed and trying to smash my headlight out to get to it ( new headlight also needed ) still no luck.
Ended up ripping the jump lead out the front of the bonnet the clip bit that goes onto the battery is still in the engine bay clipped onTo the jumping point i just pulled the cable out jumped it off the battery in the boot and got it home anybody got any ideas? How I can release that other latch ?
Its going to need a new cable,maybe a new bonnet catch ,maybe a new grill , and a new headlight
Mega peeeed off right before Xmas aswell only good thing is Im off work till next week so don't need the car ATM
