Thank you for your detailed post- I have very luckily noticed that my bonnet lock is jammed (went to garage checked oil and topped up washer water -Returning home the car alarm went off after parking due to bonnet not seated properly) - could not lock it in place by pushing down- Catch definely stuck firmly on 'open' position. Probably a very common and dangerous design problem and great advice here- WD40 has not helped yet -have tied bonnet down with some doubled up twine but latch still seems to work)
thanks again- may need to replace bonnet lock but will persevere with WD40.
Currently in faz11a's garage:
