    You need to probablt adjust the spring that is attacht to the bonnet its self

    The spring should measure 2.5 to 3cms in length...

    Give it a try...

    Anyone? I have just encountered this as well, went to open the bonnet to put screen cleaner in and nothing happens when I pull the leaver.

    Can the bonnet be opened another way?

    What do I need to adjust/check? - Pics would be helpfull.

    Cheers
