I had a set ofbonnet gas struts on my mk4 1.8 sri and i went to swap them over onto my mk4 sri turbo and they dont fit?
when you go to close the bonnet it leaves a gap that you can stick your fingures in which really does nothing for the cosmetics of the car lol.
The bracket that you bolt onto the bonnet hinge hits the inside of the wing when the bonnet is shut making this gap. i have ground down the bracket as much as possible and changed the hole size so that i could move it in or out and this still makes no difference!
Anyone any ideas why this is?
The only thing i can think of is that the wings or the bonnet is slighty different from the sri to the sri-t
would there be a difference from a 3 to and 5 door as the sri was a 5 door?
