Hello,,

Does everybody trust the two cables from one pull handle system. Refitted mine and the short cable on the Driver's side is fine but the longer cable to the passenger side is a bit iffy on operation. Also what do you do if one side snaps, sticks or generally refuses to work.?

Are there any genius alternatives (prefer not to fit the catches that poke through the bonnet) or work around or should I put a secondary line to each catch "just in case"?

I know a couple of people on Excel.net  have a put some long cable ties around the catch hanging down through the engine bay. You can reach up from underneath to open the bonnet.

That's clever. I would never have thought of that. I've been investigating Tee handles to attach another wire to at each side and passing the second wire through the bulkhead next to the original wire and fastening it to the arm of the bonnet catch. The Tee handle would be tucked away under the dash. I did wonder about just fitting a second short cable on the passenger side but thought that that would confuse anybody else such as a garage mechanic wanting to open the bonnet if they didn't know about the second pull wire.
