Bonnet latch
« on: 08 March 2018, 17:58 »
Hi guys

My bonnet stuck open and sadly now after I have messed it stays shut lol 😆

Ever time I pull the bonnet release now the cable by the latch comes loose,  we’ll the black plastic thing that attaches to the latch does? Anyone know how to fix it don’t seem to wanna stay on anymore?

Dunno if that makes sense 😂

Common fault pal, I have to get the latch replaced on mine, it was a pre-facelift, 2005 plate, you can remove the VW badge by twisting it, you should be able to get to the bolts that hold the latch in.
