How to open bonnet on my 2003 porsche carrera 4

Recommended Posts

Hi can anyone tell me how to get the bonnet open on my 2003 porsche carrera 4 convertible??? I think the bonnet actuator has broke as I press the button and nothing happens .I have read a few of the post on this site about an emergency bonnet release but some say it is in the driver side wheel well and some say passenger side ?? Please someone help me !!!! Plus got a headlight bulb out now !!!

Thanks James

It helps if you the turn the wheel out. Turn the wheel to travel to the right. That will give you more space to get at the studs. You can prise them out with a long nosed pliers and then you can remove the plug. The best thing to use is a trim wedge. This is a plastic wedge with a central slot.

Once you have found the wire it helps to press gently on the hood before giving the wire a tug.

You might want to route the wire to a more accessible spot. With the headlight removed the wire can be seen and then you have a choice of alternative locations.

Hope you find it.

I think you are right that it is on the same side (starboard) with all Carreras, but I only have experience of locating the cable with one RHD vehicle. Hence my confirmation to the OP that it is on the driver's side of his vehicle with a RHD car.

After getting the inner wing plastic out today and looking around found someone had moved it to by the front bumper which is alot easier to get to so I changed the actuator and works perfectly Thanks to all for your help
