    Default New Bonnet

    Hi All,
    I have fitted a new bonnet and now it will not stay open. I have 02 Vectra C fitted with a gas lifter.
    Can this be adjusted or does it need to be replaced?

    Thanks in advance!!

    I'll bet £10 that your new bonnet is made entirely of steel. The genuine GM bonnet for prefacelift cars has an aluminium skin with a steel structure, so it's lighter than all-steel pattern parts you can buy on ebay and the like.

    Thanks for the reply.
    Do you know whether there is a replacement gas riser available?

    Thanks

    Fit another one gas strut, this time on the driver's side.

    Or use a broom handle - which would be cheaper
