    GTS bonnet wouldn’t open

    Couldn’t believe it, lifted boot and it went further back than normal. Left strut at the top cracked open. I must have upset the strut gods this week that’s all I can think !

    GTS bonnet wouldn’t open

    And he washes it again today and the boot left side strut breaks FFS. Just broken at the little ball type joint at the top where it attaches to the boot (inserts eyes rolling smiley)

    Financial advise needed and HSBC GIC also

    Folks looking for some high level financial advise please, it’s ISA related. Also if anyone clued you on HSBC’s global investment centre accounts specifically would be beneficial. Looking for confidential advise away from here so welcome private messages. Thanks in advance

    GTS bonnet wouldn’t open

    Do you mean it’s a backup essentially if the footwell bonnet release fails? As mentioned me bonnet release works fine, just then stops after that ! EDIT: Local garage I use will get a look at some point soon, will fit it in around my work travels. I will have a further nosey this weekend myself

    GTS bonnet wouldn’t open

    What does that do, emergency makes it sound like it ‘releases’ everything and for bonnet to come up? Sounds drastic??

    GTS bonnet wouldn’t open

    To me it doesn’t feel seized as there’s movement on the bonnet, could be wrong though. Next part is how to get the bloody bonnet open now lol

    GTS bonnet wouldn’t open

    Think you’re right Scaf. Just had another play and as you face the bonnet the right hand side can be ‘flexed’ slightly if that makes sense whereas the left side is rock solid. Gotta be the strut. Next question given I can’t lift it how do I get it open? Suppose I need to lift as much as I can...

    So I instantly looked to see if wiper was lifted, even though they don’t go right up, but no nothing obvious. Can I upload vids direct to here I’ll try and take one?

    GTS bonnet wouldn’t open

    My only thought was a failed strut, it actually feels like I’d break something if I forced it. Very peculiar never has this in 5 years

    GTS bonnet wouldn’t open

    Yeah so pull lever in drivers footwell, bonnet pops up as normal. Go to bonnet, push up the lever underneath to the left hand side. The bonnet then lifts about another inch, clear the catch fine but then stops, not a dead stop it’s like it’s crushing up against something it’s very strange.

    She’s moved a touch over winter don’t get me wrong. And I was looking at April to really get her going but it’s just too nice today so a slightly early awakening from her hibernation for a few hundred miles today. That is all, no other reason for this post whatsoever :) As an aside having...
