just back from Johnsons of solihull with my suspected EGR and broken bonnet catch. Well, lets say I was not very impressed. Said they couldn't get the bonnet open, but then read the OBD code, telling me I had sticky flutter valves and error with the cooling fan ecu.
Except they couldn't do anything about it, as they would have to replace my entire cabling to the bonnet catch, and dismantle the bonnet to get it open, they 'tried everything' to open it. Wanted £45 for the privilege of telling me that.
Got home, got the (broken) black plastic bonnet catch put it on the end of the cable, pulled, and opened the bonnet!!
Edit: Apparently their solution, and to fit an new cable, is 4hrs labour.....
