Hey peoples,

My 05 golfs bonnet has decided to no longer want to open. Have tried for a couple days to open it now and cant seem to figure it out. Iv had a look on youtube an its not much help various rather destructive methods which i dont want to do to my baby.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Try thumping the bonnet, in the area of the catch, while pulling the release at the same time, or push down on bonnet while pulling release. If cable has detached from release handle, pull cable with pliers

If it ain't broke, fix it till it is. If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem. Lack of funds is the mother of ingenuity

I'm sure youtube has some videos involving badge removal to gain access? ???
