SOURCE: MY VAUXHAL ZAFIRA BONNET NOT OPENING

Do you feel any resistance when you pull the lever? If not, your cable is diconnected, probably behind the lever. If you feel resistance, your latch may not be functioning... may have to manually release through front grille.

SOURCE: VW Bora: Can't open bonnet

first of all not an easy job,you need to get the front grill off and look upwards for a cover that will be covering up the bonnet catch,basicly bend or pull this off,you should then see were the cable goes in,then you should be able to bar the catch with a screwdriver to release it. best of luck

Hopefully the cable has not snapped. Have someone else lean on the bonnet a little. (Not too much or you will dent it) Try and operate the catch while they are leaning and releasing. Or sometimes dust can accumulate on the catch. Perhaps you can spray under the bonnet with a can of WD40 and hit the catch. Try the above trick again after you have sprayed it. Once you get it open find the cause before you close it again :)

SOURCE: cant open bonnet on my vauxhall astra 1.4

the bonnet is held down with a spring thats constantly under tension. to get the bonnet open you have to remove one side of the tension where the spring connects to the slam panel. put your hand in the grille and feel for where the spring goes into the slam panel, and use something like a tyre lever put through the grille hole to pop the spring away from the slam panel, thus releasing the tension. you should be able to just pull the bonnet up. my corsa has just done the same thing and this is the only way i could get into it.

How do I fix bonnet release latch on vauxhall vectra 57 plate please


I had this problem vauxhall garage had to drill a hole in the radiator grille and use a special tool to pull the bonnet catch lever.(apparently its a common fault)
only way as there is no way of getting at the cable or the catch from under the car (only way is to remove the radiator and the bolts for that are guess what at the top under the bonnet).

How do you open a vauxhall vectra boot that wont open


Multiple scenarios:
If there is a release pull handle inside the car, try having someone push down on the boot cover (hood) while you pull the release. Most often this will work. If the release cable is broken you may need to consult a mechanic.

Engine dies on me then starts up again vaxhall vectra 2.2 dti estate


Not familiar with the vehicle however, if the "d" in "dti" stands for diesel, id check the large fuel filter; usually under the hood (bonnet). Possibly only needs the air bled out -especially if the filter has been changed recently.

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.
