Closing the hood
To avoid the hood opening at speed, DO NOT drive with the hood retained by the safety catch alone.
Replace the support stay in its retaining clip, then lower the hood, allowing it to drop for the last 12 inches (30 cm) approx.
After closing the hood, check that the lock is fully engaged by attempting to lift the front edge of the hood. This should be free from all movement.
From inside the vehicle on the left hand side, pull the hood release handle (see illustration).
Lift the safety catch lever and raise the hood.
Release the support stay from the underside of the hood.
Fit the support stay into the slotted hole in the hood locking platform.
