    Bonnet problem

    Hi guys.
    Can someone tell me what to do with broken pull in the bonnet in my astra G estate? I mean the one sticking out from the grill... I can release the main catch but I can't open my bonnet without this little pull( it stayed in my hand when I pulled it. I have had this car for a week or so and still gettin used to it....
    any advise ?

    cheers

    thanks a lot mate. from what I can see the plastic bits got broken and part of the pull is behind the grill... grrrrhhh. I mean it seems so stupid to have such a fragile plastic to poen the bonnet.
    I will try the stick bu not sure which part to attack with it
    wish me luck.

    it's all done now
    for anyone who has got the same problem:
    just get L shape firm wire or something to create a hook and pull the catch through the grill. no need to smash anything.
