  1. Bonnet release problem asap mot due

    Tred that looks like a garage job and replacement part
  2. Hey everyone I no there is a perfect very informative guide but the pictures won't load up for me. I need to get my bonnet open been trying following various guides and pictures but nothing seems to work. My current state is I have removed the rubber grommet and been trying to apply pressure via a 450mm straight screwdriver. I'm not having any luck at all can anyone think of anything I am missing or upload pics of where I need to apply pressure I have tried all around the white plastic around the black rubber one Any advice much appreciated. Driving around unable to use screen wash is getting dangerous now and mot due next week.

But breaks when doing gental breaking I'm getting vibration through the steering wheel so I'm going to change pads and discs. Any recommendations?? Also how hard would it be to upgrade to St calipers discs pads. And I'm sure the rear is drum breaks is there a guide to make a disc conversion? Cheers
