|Wandlust||Hi I replaced my cable last year on a 2006 B634. It was a Fiat part but unfortunately I don't have the part number.If you go to a Fiat dealer they should be able to supply it. I do remember it was £70 odd quid. Hope this helps. Rob|
Thanks for all the advice.
I've tried to lubicate it from the bonnet end, hanging as much as possible vertically without much sucess. I guess I now have to remove the whole cable and feed in a lubricant from the top whilst the whole length is suspended.
If there is anything to report I'll post it.

Building on Barry's advice, you might like to consider ensuring the WD40 is the "Specialist High Performance Silicone Lubricant" variant. I use it regularly on anything that sticks or squeeks.

The bonnet release cable is almost seized.
