Removing the front bonnet panel (to refill the screenwash)


Recommended Posts

I really need to fill up the windscreen wash before using the car tomorrow morning. It's the first time I've had to take the front bonnet panel off and I can't find the user manual.  :huh:

 

Can someone please give me some easy-to-follow instructions (I mean, really easy to follow; I'm a complete numpty)?

 

Thanks.  :smoke:

What?! Need to take off a bonnet panel to fill up screen wash?

Reminds me of an episode of the US Office. Michael Scott asks his accountant to explain what a surplus is, as if explaining it to an 8 year old. He does so. Michael, with a puzzled look then asks him

I'm sure that's what I was told when I bought the car. Jamie from B&C did show me - it involves a latch somewhere and some little pegs I think - but I can't really remember.

Love it!

Perhaps this will help ---- Front access panel

 

 

To remove:

Standing by the left hand side of the vehicle, use your right hand forefinger to push the panels release lever forwards, releasing the panel from the latch assembly.

  • The rear of the panel will slightly raise.

  • Pull each outer end of the panel upwards releasing the panels retaining posts from the rubber sockets.

  • Withdraw the panel rearwards to release it from its keyhole slots in the clamshells centre exit grille.

    To refit:

    Locate the two front pegs into the keyhole slots and slide the panel down and forwards.

  • Locate the panels central retaining pin into the latch: firmly pressing down until an audible click is heard.

  • Press each side of the panel down into their rubber sockets.

  • Press the access panel one final time at its centre above the latch area to confirm it is fully secured into position.

    WARNING: Ensure the access panel is refitted and properly secured before driving.
