Anyone know how to pop the bonnet in a 2003 Ford KA? Theres a red pulley thing under the steering column but it looks like its just wire housing? Cheers.

That is the bonnet release, just hook your fingers under the end furthest away from you, and pull down and toward you and the bonnet will open.

If you dont know how to pop the bonnet how on earth are you going to manage to do what you want to do when you get it open?

my last car had a little pulley with an icon on the passenger side, much easier. Thanks fat controller.

You're welcome - Ford have had that wee red lever under the steering column for years (I always thought it a bit odd too - maybe they just wanted to be different )

Yup, then you'll be able to open the bonnet about an inch. Look in the gap and you'll see a wee yellow hook you need to pull across to release it fully. The garage oiled mine last time i had it service, it was like opening a different bonnet
