    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    Your car spec says 0, only what I've added from this thread minus the engine size/type.

    Wait until Crasher reads this thread as he is the expert on all VW makes and model with this problem.

    Thread moved to the correct section as its not a maintenance problem.

    just a update, got the bonnet open. Took the interior bonnet handle off and put pliers on the cable. Had someone push down on the bonnet at the same time. Took some force but it worked. I cleaned and oiled the bonnet latch and mechanism as it seemed very stiff. Hope this helped
