Audi bonnet release repair kit

1.Description of Fault:

On older Audis, the bonnet release mechanism will stop working due to the failure of a small plastic part that connects the release handle to the release cable.

2.What is the cause?

We have considered the following:

  • the design of the part
  • the aging of the plastic materials
  • the increase of resistance in the bonnet release mechanism due to the system not being operated and lubricated periodically
  • the way in witch the user operates the handle (moderate load vs dynamic load) 

3.What is the Solution?

Our solution consists of a redesigned custom 3D printed part. This part will save you from ordering all the bonnet release assembly and also will allow for a easy install, with less labor cost.

4.Will this part work on my car?

At this point in time we can confirm that is works on the Audi A4 A5 B8 generation LHD and RHD. At the same time we are confident that it also works on many more cars. Based on our research we are recommending this kit for:

  • Audi A3 S3 (2013~2016)
  • Audi A4 S4 B8 generation (2009+)
  • Audi A5 S5 (2008~2016)
  • Audi A6 S6 2014~2018
  • Audi A7 S7
  • Audi Q5 Sq5

Our product will work with: 

8T1 823 633 8T2 823 633 8T1 823 533 8T2 823 533

Check the shape of your handle

For non Audi A4 B8 please check the shape of the handle and also the shape of the part inside. If it is similar the kit will fit. LHD cars or RHD cars are the same.

Order Now do you prevent?

The best thing to do is periodically operate and lubricate your Audi’s bonnet release mechanism. This will include the bonnet lock and the cable in all the points where you have access. Use a lubricating spray (WD40 should help).

Don’t use sprays that turn into solid grease as those will increase resistance.

Don’t forget to be “gentile” when operating the release. A progressive load will be better than a dynamic one. do install?
