    Default cannot open bonnet

    hey

    I have a vectra 2003 model dti

    i went to open the bonnet esterday but it didnt open

    It doesnt seem if the cable has snapped but looks like its caught at teh front. If the cable had snapped the lever would be properl loose right

    think the catch the front has failed to release or just got stuck

    how can i opoen the bonnet from the front?

    cheers

    I had the same problem when i got mine,you need someone else to pull bonnet as you pull the lever,once you've got it open grease up the catch really well and work the bonnet a few times....

    Hope this helps......

    either that or take the bumper skin off and access the catch from underneath, moving the retaining spring over with a big screwdriver or lever..
