Unlocking the bonnet catch
Lift the bonnet a few centimetres in order to pull the tab 2 to the left.
Depending on the vehicle, the tab 2 may be partially hidden behind a soft seal.
Opening the bonnet
Lift the bonnet, helping it up, and it will rest in position with the help of struts.
Before performing any action in the engine compartment, the ignition must be switched off (please see the information on “Starting, stopping the engine” in Section 2).
Do not press down on the bonnet: there is a risk that the bonnet may accidentally close.
When working in the engine compartment, ensure that the windscreen wiper stalk is in the park position.
Risk of injury.
Please note when working close to the engine that it may be hot. The engine cooling fan may also start at any moment. The warning light in the engine compartment reminds you of this.
Risk of injury.
Closing the bonnet
Check that nothing has been left in the engine compartment.
To close the bonnet again, hold the bonnet in the middle and lower it to 30 cm above the closed position, then release it. It will latch automatically under its own weight.
After carrying out any work in the engine compartment, check that nothing has been left behind (cloth, tools, etc.).
These may damage the engine or cause a fire.
Ensure that the bonnet is properly locked.
Check that nothing is preventing the catch from locking (gravel, cloth, etc.).
In the event of even a slight impact involving the radiator grille or bonnet, have the bonnet lock checked by an approved dealer as soon as possible.
