    Unhappy Bonnet Release Catch

    Or not catching should I say...

    Went to full the car up with some much needed screenwash, and the leaver just clicks but does not release the bonnet, It sound like it is slipping very near to the leaver.

    Is this somthing I can look at or do I have to pay the stealers?

    Its not that big an issue at the moment, It just started to rain

    Im going to take a look under the Dash on the weekend I think, I recken somthing has borken of the leaver itself, rather than it being a cable problem.

    Rich dude,

    I had this problem when I fitted my lifters,

    I just got me mom to push down on the bonnet. Then it popped!

    Give it a go!

    When i took the catch off to Cut it back when fitting the Irmy Grill my dad shut the bonnet with out the catch on! I got in by poppin it by the lever in the footwell, then used a coat hanger to hook and unclip it the rest of the way! at least that way you should be able to open it to get a look in!
