    My wife has a 2005 2.0 legacy non turbo and when i came to put some water in the washers this morning i pulled the bonnett release catch and its either snapped or come loose.I now cannot open the bonnett.Any ideas on how i can do this bearing in mind i have 2 left hands.

    Dogmas pic looks to be the right model.

    I can't see how you would get the grille off without lifing the bonnet!

    I can get some pics for you if it would help...

    Being dragged out shopping just now - but will PM my mobile No. if I can help.

    Good luck

    i don't think you could take the grille off as the upper radiator crossmember is where it clips in and that well under bonnet. i would if i was you start working from inside car out
