<strong>The other technique used by mechanics is to place both hands on front of bonnet(engine cover, hood etc) and push down suddenly and firmly and then quickly release pressure so as to "bounce" the bonnet.NB Bonnet release catch has to held in release position whilst doing the above.
The only thing to remember is to do it close to front edge where metal is thickest and supported (Don't want to dent the bonnet)</strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Yeah,
But be bloody careful if you're going to do this on a GTV, the bonnet is large and it is made of composite materials, not metal. If you "bounce" it too hard you'll crack it and that will be one hell of a repair bill! Also, the bumper directly below the bonnet is composite, so try not to damage that either! I imagine it's a sticky guide, the "pulling up whilst someone is holding the lever" technique should work though.
Where has he been?
