Difficult one but not surmountable,need right tools to remove grille and find a way into bottom of catch ,suggest you call your local mobile mechanic as this sort of thing is hands on and without car in front of me its difficult to advise as iam a general mechanic with a bad case of old timers.but most likely cause is the outer cable has pulled through the end fastening but what end ?? as i wrote its a hands on job.

How do you release the bonnet of a vauxhall vectra 04 from the outside ?


As a general rule, you don't.

However, if the inside handle is broken, sometimes you can reach up from under the front end of the vehicle and find the cable that leads to the release. IF you are lucky enough, you can pull on that cable and sometimes the hood (bonnet) will pop open.

How to open the bonnet of Hyundai i10 car for filling up engine oil


Under your dash there is a small lever with a handle and marking. pull this for ejecting the bonnet. use your palm to push off the safety lack that hold the bonnet- safety for holding on during high speed/ wind if the bonnet lack opens- to lift up your boonet. You can look through the gap of the bonnet to see this safety latch.
now on top of the engine you will see the cap for the oil inlet.
Now beffore you do that , use the dip stick to look for the oil level. wipe it and check again. Only if the oil is down you need to replace. Also topping is not required unless the engine is old/bad. otherwise it is important to change the oil filter and oil along with your service. So check this out. Good day

Bonnet cable come away fron front catch on bonnet


replace it.... buy a new cable assembly and install it (unless, of course, that's not exactly what's wrong with it). You say it keeps 'coming out'... tell you what, take a photo of 'where it's coming out' and perhaps we will be able to help you.

Bonnet wont open on reault laguna


There are two release catches about 15" to the right and left of the centre safety catch. Roughly at each end of the top of the radiator.

The bonnet release cable goes first to the right hand one then there is a wire from that to the left, in a daisy chain way. They are typically French, cables fit into plastic levers ( a bit like bike brakes) not metal which break easily. replacements are not cheap. You need to be able to pull the cable to both catches to get the bonnet up. I managed to do this from underneath. In my case the, left hand one was broken and right hand one was working, but the getting it open broke the bit that that pulls the left. Managed to away with buying just one new catch as they are identical, swopping the right partly broken one over to the left side.
