Before closing the bonnet, make sure that no-one is obstructing the closing area and that hands and clothes are clear. The closing bonnet may cause serious injuries.


Do not drive with the bonnet secured by the safety catch alone. If the bonnet opens while driving, it may lead to a collision, which may cause serious injuries or death.


When closing the bonnet, make sure to stand in front of the vehicle. Do not attempt to close the bonnet while standing at the side of the vehicle. Doing so may result in incorrect latching of the bonnet, which may cause serious injuries or death.

To close the bonnet:

  1. Using both hands, lower the bonnet and let it drop from a height of between 20 to 50 cm.

  2. Try to lift the front edge of the bonnet, near both corners, to check that it is securely engaged.

  3. If the bonnet lifts slightly, it is not properly latched. Open the bonnet again, and with a little more force, try again to close it.
