Engine bonnet release latch not working properly

Recommended Posts



My 120i bonnet release latch is difficult to open the bonnet. It just started causing me problems. 

The handles comes right up but does does open the bonnet, I need to try it about 5 times and I am worried I will break the plastic latch.

My question is there a way to tighten the cable or should I just replace the cable, if so how easy is it to replace myself.


All suggestions greatly appreciated.

The cable is fairly easy to change but before you do check the the bonnet catches are properly lubricated and working as they should.
