Cable release for engine cover.

Recommended Posts

I'm a new Elise owner and first time lotus owner. My car is a 4 year old Elise s3 and I'm just trying to sort out 2 or 3 minor issues. The car is fabulous. The lever for releasing the engine lid feels rough when pulled, as if metal is rubbing and going to wear and break some time soon. Before I strip it down are there any known faults and fixes?

When we purchased our new Elise from Hoffman’s we noticed the cable was very stiff and felt like it could snap.

On trying other cars in stock they where all similar until we found one car which was very light and easy to use.

Hoffmans had a proper look and decided to order a replacement cable .

The factory had routed the cable so badly that the cable and its guide had two kinks , one at each end so there was no chance of a smooth light action .

Our now 3years on still easy and light to use.
