    Default bonnet release

    The bonnet release handle located in the driver footwell of my 2008 Vectra has quite a lot of free movement before releasing the bonnet catch and it feels as though the cable needs adjusting. Is this easy to do, and if so how is it done ?

    Chaps is there a way to open the bonnet from out side Of my signum. Via the front grill. The release handle moves all the way back and i have tried to move the cable
    with pliers and nothing. I think lever is sticking.

    If you pull the handle to the left it will pop out of its bracket then just pull it toward you and bonnet will pop, then just do the reverse to get back in bracket, that's all I did the followed how 2 to tighten cable hth mate
