Re: v40 bonnet/hood release problem
While I don't have the same vehicle and thus cannot say for sure ... it
does sound like the cable my have snapped or at least let-go somewhere
along the line.
I'm pretty sure your local service centre would be able to open the hood
(once it's up on the hoist) and fix that for you.
I noticed this post cuz just yesterday my V70 hood (er, sorry 'bonnet')
didn't open. One side opened, but the other side wouldn't let go. I
was worried ... so I left it for a moment and started to tinker on other
projects in the garage ... and next thing I know, I heard a *click* ...
sure enough, the 2nd clamp finally gave-in and the hood was able to
open. So ... I lubricated it RIGHT away!! :)
