Trafic bonnet - closed height adjustment


Can anybody please tell me whether the height of the bonnet (when it is in the closed position) can be adjusted?

When my bonnet is securely closed, the area around the headlights is about 10mm lower than the adjacent headlights.

Can the bonnet catch be adjusted so that it secures it at a slightly higher position?

Re: Trafic bonnet - closed height adjustment

I'm only guessing but as far as I know the actual spring safety catch itself is not adjustable but isn't there usually a couple of small bump rubbers either side of the bonnet panel - with perhaps an adjustable screw underneath them.
I would've thought there is some simple adjustment for the factory assembly line to get the panel fit looking just right.
