CLOSING THE HOOD

WARNING

Before closing the hood, make sure that no-one is obstructing the closing area and that hands and clothes are clear.

CAUTION

When closing the hood, make sure that you are standing in front of the vehicle. Do not attempt to close the hood while standing at the side of the vehicle, this may result in incorrect latching of the hood.

  • While standing in front of the vehicle, apply a continuous, even pressure to both sides of the hood in the positions shown, until the hood is securely latched on both sides.

  • Check that both latches are fully engaged by attempting to lift both sides of the rear outer-edge of the hood. This should be free from all movement.

  • If the hood fails to latch securely on either side, re-open the hood and repeat the above procedure until both sides of the hood are securely latched.
