    Bonnet Release Lever

    Im having problems opening my bonnet on astra mk4 , I believe the leaver which is pulled to release the bonnet is loose and the cable wont pull all the way I was wondering is there is any way of trying to fix this as I don’t want to fork out more cash .
    I tried pulling it pulling it and dried to disassociate it from the lever it self but had no luck any ideas?

    it looks a bit like your cable has stretched. Mine did that. I was told I had 2 options. 1 = get a new cable (was quoted £15 from a scrappie) or 2 = put up with it

    I chose 2... much cheaper! Assuming your bonnet opens at all then where's the problem? In normal use, how many times a week do you open the bonnet?

    HTH but sorry if its not the answer you were after

    the problem he was having was that when he pulled the lever the cable wouldnt release the pulley in the grill. he couldnt get under the bonnet at all and his radiator has started to leak. Ha.
