i did a search but i didnt seem to come up with much,
my problem is i cant open my bonnet just by puling the lever under the dash i need a second person to push down on the bonnet and then to get their fingers under it and lift it up so you can use the catch, what i am wondering is how i go about adjusting my bonnet relese so that it actually pops.

thanks James

Take it into a panel beater? I hate doing bonnets, they always sit differently for me. Is there any signs of paint freshness underneath where it should be?

One side at a time playing around.

If you ever take iti off, trace around it before you take out the bolts.

i had the same trouble. use a flat blade screw driver and turn the pin anti-clockwise a few turns. then tighten the nut up. it may take a few times to get it how you like.
