    Bonnet Lifters Help - How To??????????????

    Just got some used bonnet lifters, thought i knew how to fit them after seeing them close u a couple of week ago. (OOhhhh i was wrong)

    1. Does the angled bracket attach to the top bolt??

    2. Which way does it sit the ball to the top,bottom,left or right???

    Sorry if i sound thick, but everyone has a dumb moment (Well i have a few lol)

    Or a how to would be great, tried the search even for some pics but all shots were too far away for me to see

    Cheers guys

    Did you think to look at the How-to section in the technical forum?
    There is a guide there, with pictures & everything.
