    Astra Mk4 broken bonnet release tab

    Sold my irmy grille and bought the opel opc one. when i bought the car the bonnet tab pull was broken, but still came through far enough to let me grab it, so never bothered sourcing another.

    Now that i have tried to fit another grille the broken part won't come out through the new grille, hits off the strip along the top and if i fit it, i won't get the bonnet open again.

    Are these sold seperate at all? and how do they come off the bonnet? I had a quick look and all i can see is a metal pin holding the mechanism together and a metal type spring thing. How does it come off to be changed?

    Cheers for any advice, and where to source one.
