    Default My bonnet flaps around at speed. Anyone else's doing the same?

    My bonnet flaps around at speed when I'm on the motorway even though I've checked the catch and pulled over many times to check that it is secure.
    Is anyone elses pre-facelift doing the same?

    you could adjust the bonnet catch to make it pull down harder.... slacken the locking nut and screw the insert screw in some more....

    I might just do that. The reason I hdn't so far is that I was wondeing if the skin could have pulled away on the inside making the bonnet catch less effective?

    I'm not surprised. I was driving up the A1M last week during the high winds doing almost 70 in the outside lane when the high load in the flat bed van I was overtaking tipped over. I've never stamped on my brakes so hard and shot from 70 down to 30 so quick before. Luckily his load was strapped in at the bottom so he ended up draging it just short of it hitting the road right in front of me. He dived in to the hard shoulder and I dropped it a couple of cogs to get passed him as quick as I could once I saw that his load was staying put long enough for me to get past.
    Just think how the driver who's bonnet went over felt though, my biggest fear is not being able to see a thing, along with being coverd in glass and having a bent roof too
