    Astra G bonnet lifters

    After fitting my lifters I find that once the bonnets shut it no longer sits flush with the wing.

    There are 2 foam seals/pads at the back of the bottom which if I remove all lines up ok?

    Has anyone come across this and if so what did you do?

    Cheers

    Oh and also is it correct that the pins on the wing turn to face at a 45degree angle (ish) after a couple of times? I fitted them straight and now the point towards the windscreen!

    I've dropped the things that hold them in place, only had two of those left, so used the remaining two to retain the top part of the lifters... but if you've lost all of them, just make suer they aren't anywhere near falling when you lift the bonnet lol
