    Engine : 1.8 VVT

    Mileage : 130k

    Default Bonnet Alignment

    Since putting on my eyebrows it seems my bonnet could do with some adjustment in height.

    Once side sites lower than the other making the eyebrow stand high and looking a bit odd.

    Had a seach here but failed to turn up anything.

    The last time I adjusted a bonnet was in the early 90's on my first cortina and that was a right royal pain in the rear.

    Is this possible to do or best left alone. Oh its on an 06 Facelift Vec

    Thank you

    Scratch that I have just found out what the actual problem is.

    My drivers side light cluster is sitting ever so slightly high. That would be my fault after removing the front bumper and lights the last time I suspect.

    Guess what im doing tomorrow then :-)

    EDIT : The bonnet could still do with abit of tweaking but I spose you can't ask for perfect alignment unless its a Bentley or alike

    On the slam panel you'll see several black, hexagonal bump stops - I can't remember if you can adjust the height of them by twisting them.
