To open the bonnet, pull handle 1.

Unlocking the bonnet catch

To unlock, pull control 2.

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).

In the event of even a slight impact involving the radiator grille or bonnet, have the bonnet lock checked by an authorised dealer as soon as possible.

Please note when working close to the engine that it may be hot. In addition, the engine cooling fan may start at any moment. The warning light in the engine compartment reminds you of this.

Risk of injury.

Opening the bonnet

Lift the bonnet and release stay 4 from its holders 5. For your own safety, it is essential to fix the stay into retainer 3 in the bonnet.

Closing the bonnet

Ensure that the windscreen wiper blades are correctly positioned.

Place stay 4 back into its holders 5, hold the bonnet in the middle and lower it to about 20 cm above the closed position, then release it. It will latch automatically under its own weight.

After any procedure in the engine compartment, make sure that you do not forget anything (cloth, tools, etc.).

Otherwise, this may lead to engine damage or cause a fire.

Ensure that the bonnet is properly locked.

Check that nothing is preventing the catch from locking (gravel, cloth, etc.).
