View Full Version : Bonnet
02-23-2004, 06:20 PM
This may sound stupid but when I bought my E30 the bonnet had been supplied but not fitted. I have fiddled and sweared at it for hours but still no luck. How the hell do I refit it, does anyone have any info,pictures or diagrams. Any help would be much appreciated.

Aw comon, surely someone knows how to fit a bonnet (hood), it is really starting to frustrate me.

-bolt the hood to the hinges at the front of the hood (red circles)....
-bolt the retaining brackets to the hood (green circles)....
-bolt gas shock/bracket assembly to hood (blue circle)
