How easy is it to replace the bonnet release cable on an S-Max? I got as far as removing air filter, battery cover and battery, but how on earth do you remove it from the bulk head in the passenger well? The cable just disappears up behind he wiring loom.
It is a two man job as it comes in from behind the carpet to the release handle to gain access, you will need to remove the passenger plastic trim from around the door seal and fold the carpet back until you uncover the hole it comes through.
I also found easier to remove the large electrical connector with the metal clamps to gain access to the hole in question.
then one person pushing it through from engine bay and the other in the foot well to pull it through.
Shocking design, routing and not an quick job.
