Weak Bonnet Struts / nearly decapitated
Was under the bonnet today in my lunch break, the wind was whistling and it was bitterly cold.
I turned my back to grab a rag and there was a god almighty SLAM!
The bonnet had shut itself, thankfully there where no tools on the engine otherwise I would be looking for a new bonnet.
Thinking it was a one off due to the wind I released the bonnet, raised it and carried on.
Then it did it again, Is the cold weather effecting the performance of the struts or do they need replacing, if so will it be a dealer job or can I get a pattern part?
All the best
