bonnet hinge bolts

I seem to have paint damage to the extreme upper right corner of my bonnet and windscreen sill/base? on my 147gta. Im told by my panel shop that it is possibly from hyper extension of the bonnet when lifted and/or perhaps the bolts that hold the bonnet hinge in place have slipped?! Any body had/heard of this problem before. I'm booked in to the dealer soon to see if the damage is covered under waranty. The bonnets only been lifted a couple of times mostly when being serviced.

Re: bonnet hinge bolts

Hi and welcome to the forum

I wouldn't have thought over-extending the bonnet was possible due to the struts used...but then I've never tried to do it either!!

Is it possible that something has hit your car? I had similar damage after being hit by something kicked up by a lorry!!
