Re: Help... Faulty bonnet catch

When you pull the lever in the car, does it return to it's stop when you let go.
If not, it could be a sticking cable or mechanism at the bonnet catch end.
Have you tried lubricating the mechanism.
Be careful with this problem. The bonnets like to come open at speed on Clios.
If you are not sure, take it to a garage....slowly.
Cost depends on the fault.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
