There's a bigger gap on the left as you look at the bonnet. Only just realised after the repair. Sure I could take it to them but would be better if I could do it. Smile

Thanks

James.

Did they remove the bonnet when they did the bodywork? Look to see if the paint on the hinge securing bolts has been disturbed.

There is supposed to be an approx. 4mm gap between the back edge of the bonnet and the scuttle panel.
Between the front of the bonnet and the top edge of the bumper it should be approx. 6mm.

As Jack says though it's more than likely to be the bumper that's out of alignment, the outer edges are supported on a sort of springy plastic clip that allows quite a degree of movement, make sure the gap is correct or you may find the bumper will be rubbing the paint off the lower edge of the bonnet!

The bumper and bonnet were replaced. I'll see if anyone at the pub knows too while I'm there. Thanks guys. Smile
