Post subject:  Tx2 bonnet wont open

Hi guys

Got an issue with my tx2 where the bonnet wont open. If i pull the release handle the bonnet pops and the same thing happens if i operate the cable manually at the front of the cab so i guess its not an issue with the cable. However the bonnet only pops up a small amount not enough to release the safety catch. Any ideas on how to get the thing open? as the battery is completely flat. I've tried using a small screwdriver to push the safety catch but that didn't work. My guess is that the bonnet is not high enough to release the safety catch.

Thanks

You might have to push the bonnet down a bit after it’s ‘popped’ and try to release the catch.

Thanks for the replies guys

Managed to get the bonnet open. Think the bonnet had come out of alignment. Managed to just about get a spanner on the bolts that hold the bonnet to the hinge on the RHS. Once i undone them the bonnet lifted up high enough to release the safety catch. After i carefully opened the bonnet i re- fitted the bolts and adjusted the position of the bonnet and it now opens and closes perfectly

Thanks guys.
