Bonnet Release

Hi all,

My bonnet release will not release the bonnet and I really need to fill my washer bottle - I cannot drive more than a few miles without having to stop and manually clean the screen.

My GT Blackline is only 3 months old but the dealer is 80 miles away. There must be an external release but where is it - the owner's manual tells me nothing.

Thanks in anticipation.

Sorry I don't know the answer but in the meantime a water pistol squited out of the window would help.

Re: Bonnet Release

Try getting someone else to push the bonnet down while you pull the release.

I'm guessing it is the usual sticking catch issue...

Re: Bonnet Release

when you say bonnet release are you just pulling the one in the car?there's a second lever just under the lip of the bonnet above the will find it with your right hand.i hope i'am not telling you how to suck eggs.
