    Hi Everyone,
    Does anyone know how to open the bonnet of my Z3 with a broken release cable. I think the cable is either broken or disconnected at the front end.
    Car has not been used for 6 or 8 months and when I came to give it a check over prior to having it mot tested, I discovered this problem although I am almost sure that it was ok when last used.

    I had the same problem I read online that taking the bumper etc off to get to the cable was a good place to start.i just punched the kidney grills through and managed to get onto enough cable to open it then replaced with black grills
