Ever since our Golf had a slight fender bender the bonnet release mechanism inside the cabin hasn’t worked and we haven’t been able to open the bonnet. Most cars, if not all will have a manual method of releasing the bonnet if the cable into the cabin gets damaged or stretches as is the case with our car. We made this quick video guide to show you how to manually release the bonnet on a mk5 VW Golf if the same thing happens to you.
