Disconnecting bonnet switch

Can somebody please describe where exactly the bonnet switch is exactly so I can disconnect it.

The alarm has been going off intermittently the last couple of weeks.

Honda are looking at it next week and I don't want to have my car parked up in work and overnight with the bonnet released.

The alarm seems to go off after its been driven - just closed bonnet after it parked overnight and no alarm going off.

I've tried the door handle and lock from the inside trick but after a few seconds the motion sensor red light just comes back on.

The switch is under the bonnet on the latch.

I can see a couple of switches down there. Is it the one on the narrow wire on the left hand side of the bonnet latch directly under it? There is another narrow wire on the right hand side.

Can't really get my phone in there to get a decent pic.

The wire to the left of the bonnet has two thin wires going into a connection, one is yellow and red the other is black.

This sound like the bonnet switch?

I can't for the life of me post pics in this place.

Thank you so much Farqui for helping me out with this.

That eBay pic looks like the switch I'm on about alright.

I'll take another crack at it. Thanks again!

You're welcome, good luck.

Bless, are you using a browser or mobile app when uploading pic's?

Tapatalk can be troublesome for some.
