Bonnet Won't Open

2 posts in this topic

The bonnet release inside passenger foot well on my '03 Fusion no longer opens the bonnet.

I've pulled the handle as far as it will go (almost to the point of snapping) but there just doesn't appear to be enough tension to release the catch.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ask a friend to push down hard on the bonnet directly over the catch and try pulling the lever,if it opens the catch needs adjusting.If that does not work you may have to crawl under the car and shine the torch towards the bonnet catch you will be able to see it (i have just tried it myself and I could clearly see the catch with a torch)ask the friend to slowly pull the bonnet release and see it there is any movement where the cable attaches if not then the cable may be seized or broken.You may be able to use a long strong bar to move the catch over.I did not try that when I checked the catch.

Q: when was the last time the bonnet was opened? and was it ok then?.
