    Default bonnet cable catch smashed grill

    wll like most i have the issue of the bonnet not opening when lever is pulled, on vectra c 04 2.0 deisel

    usual advice of pushing on the bonnet while pulling lever didnt work.

    so after reding some forums, i smahed my grill right off, only to be unable to locate the catch.. so i have destroyed my grill and i still cant see how or what to push pull or tug?

    i notice some peeple have accessed their bonnet this way but im stuck!!

    Hi m8
    If you have got all the grill off then reach through it and find the long arm of the spring,
    get yourself a large flat screw driver the bigger the better and hold it against the spring at the back where it goes into the panel then give it a wack this will push the spring away from the locking ring and release bonnet

    and still loving it
