My bonnet wont stay shut. Upon inspection the little spring that keeps the bonnet catch under tension has snapped. Its the one that the interior bonnet release lever is connected to.

Does anyone know:

a) the part number
b) if a suitable replacement is available from Halfords?

Cheers

Sounds like you need a new bonnet catch.
Can't give an accurate p/n without an accurate description of the car (ie year/version/alarm/etc).

But a new lock is about £45 for pre-facelift and about £55 for facelift.
Or get a good s/h one.

You won't find one in Halfords...!!

That is also unlikely.

Given the number of bonnet catch failures, which result in the bonnet smashing the roof and windscreen in, effectively destroying the car, it isn't something you want to bodge.
