    INXX bonnet lifters seized?

    Hello people,
    Hopefully someone out there can help me out with my dilemma.
    I've just been messing around with car and I can't get the bonnet opened.
    It's only been around 2 weeks since I last had it open but it solid today.
    The only thing I can imagine it being is the bonnet lifters being seized.

    Has anyone any ideas on how to get these free again.
    I only oiled them about 6 weeks ago.

    Thanks in advance for any ideas.

    Cheers Mark

    Never heard of them siezing tbh, especially as they have been oiled... I had some on my car for 2 years (never oiled or cleaned them and they were fine)

    WD40 and then lube them once they are free
    The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    are you sure the catch has unlatched itself? Even if the lifters were knackered I am sure you would be able to move them with a little bit of force..
