Anyone else have problems with their bonnet opening mechanism?
Wife cannot operate it as so so stiff plus opens 2 out of 3 attemps for me. When I lift the lever to the top twice the bonnet opens but will not release so I can open it fully. Old design far better.

Make sure you are pulling it up all the way until you get the chime on the first pull, then pull firmly again until you hear the hood pop.

Takes some elbow grease and practice :)

Ridiculous design.- or lack of. The designer's mother should try to open the hood.

I like it saves faffing for the silly oily lever that lurked under the bonnet of other cars!
