The bonnet closes OK, BUT will not stay closed. Within minutes of driving, it pops up on the driver's side. I have greased and lubricated it, and removed the catch at least 6 times and tried to adjust it, but to no avail. It would seem to me that the cable is not long enough as, upon closing the catch then applying minimal pressure on the cable end, it disengages. Also, the sprung arm in the catch moves very little and has minimal engagement on the camber on which it locates when closed.

It sounds like the lever in mechanism that acts as the part to hold it closed is worn out or faulty.
