The Mk2 bonnet release latch was reached through an opening in the grille; the curved hook made the release easier to reach than on earlier models. This type of latch was introduced on Mk2 models, but continued on Mk3 models; later Minis introduced latches that protrude through the grille.
Also known as a bonnet catch or a bonnet release.
