OK thanks for that stripe, it looks like I will have to pull the internal trim away from around the handle. I have mooched around with my hand but I can't feel any cable. Access in a nightmare especially with my big hands.cant be much help but we had the same thing the first day we got the 207, didnt see how the guy opened it but seem to think it was pulling the cable hard from inside the car as it was the bracket in the engine bay broke.
If I recall correctly, I read a post a long time ago about someone getting at the latch from the side by removing a wheel and the arch liner.Anyone ?, I've jacked the car up to see if I can get it from the bottom but there's that much going on I cant get my hand up to the latch nevermind a pair of mole grips to tug the release cable
There must be a way

Might be worth scouting it out on another car of the same model first, to see if that looks feasible. Or with the hood open on another car you might spot a route for a poke-y/hook-y tool that isn't obvious from the outside.
No joy on googling that number though, but rubber grommet looks like what's on the ones for sale online.Right I unclipped all the underside were the handle is and revealed this cable. Can someone confirm this is the bonnet cable ?
proper ball-acke this, I can follow the cable from the rubber gromit back towards the handle but it's like stuck behind the glove box fuse box and its wont pull back out from behind the fuse box. I've a feeling it's attached to the handle and the cables knackered at the latch end or worse the bonnet lock-latch is knackered, driving me up the wall this.No joy on googling that number though, but rubber grommet looks like what's on the ones for sale online.
Is it broken on the handle end? Then wise grips on the end of the wire might do it w(o poking about in theengine bay.
Don't think it would be on our (Swedish) equivalent, as long as it opens and the mechanism has the security catch to prevent the bonnet from flying up in working order... I believe those are the only criteria.I managed to get to the root of the problem, a knackered bonnet release lever, It was cracked and the spring had gone and only God knows were thats headed off to
When I pulled the trim away I freed the cable from the handle I release the cable like you do on a bikes brakes and gave it a tug and up it popped so the cables itselfs fine,
Question, without the handle just the cable is this an MOT fail ?. It's due Weds for a MOT and I'm pushed for time to pick a spare in time from the scrappers
