Hi
Recently bought a near perfect CL600 (2001) A small problem , the bonnet will not open, when its released from inside there does not appear to be the toggle to pull from the front grill to release. Any ideas on how to solve this?
Regards
Steve

I think the best idea would be for you to use a pair of long nosed pliers through the grill and see if there's a bit of the toggle that you can get hold of and pull, with them. If you use a torch you might be able to see part of the toggle that's left.

Replace the toggle / latch before you close the bonnet again or if it was easy to pull out.. keep some pliers on board until you do ;)

Hi,on first opening the bonnet the catch on both my Mercedes does not protude beyond the grill, on lifting the bonnet slightly the catch then ptotrudes so you can pull it,give it a try.
