Replacing the bonnet latch spring
« on: 12 April 2011, 21:22:13 »

If you are having issues opening the bonnet and have already tried adjusting the cable then read on.

The latch spring on the bonnet can wear with use and has also been seen to become distorted if forced.

This is a nice easy and cheap part to replace.

So, start by removing the end caps on the radiator cover and extract the two screws that secure the cover in place. Remove the cover.

If its a pre-facelift car, remove the front grill.

Now slacken the bonnet release cable by slackening the securing bolt.

Remove the bolt which holds the bonnet cable cover in place.

Using a set of pliers, unclip the bonnet latch spring from the slam panel.

Reach up under the slam panel to work the bonnet cable from the end of the latch spring.

Extract the latch spring through the slam panel hole.

Re-fit is the reverse of removal, apply grease to the spring assembly and tighten the cable as per the cable adjustment guide.

All done!
