Been spoiling the GTV today
Ordered some braided brake lines and red stuff brake pads and a new head unit (Blaupunkt Casablanca) and new speakers (JL).
Managed to get the strut brace fitted but the bonnet will only open if someone pulls the lever and another person bounces the bonnet. Any suggestions?
My bonnet was like that till I fixed it. It just sounds like it's needing the catch points re-adjusted.
You will see the cable coming from the pass side up to the first "locking hole" on the top front valance bar. There is a fixed nipple here crimped onto the cable which pulls the release catch (No1) to open.
Follow the cable to the drivers side "locking hole", where the cable ends, and you will find a small knurled nut. This can be tightened or loosened and will effectively adjust the position of the locking catch on both sides. To hard to explain, you will need to look and see what is happening.
The other adjustment required is for the bonnet prongs, one on each side, which fit into the "locking holes". These can be adjusted up/down and left/right by releasing the big flat nut at the end of the spring.
Lots of fiddling around to get it just right so it closes securely put pops open when you pull on the lever. Have fun!
