Ouch. This hurts. :banghead: We've had the our rig in the ship now for a week, and it looks like, from what the mechanic says, our first problem is the actuator motor that opens the throttle - it's out of range - the pedal is not the problem. So we have to replace it. The mechanic said it took them a long time to get the bonnet off, it appeared to be glued on with superglue.

Additionally, we should replace the serpentine belt while the bonnet is open.

So much for thinking it was just the fuel filter.

Purplefans & Harvey, Please allow me to introduce you to a new term when you are speaking about engine covers, its called a .... "Dog House!!" :thumb: WOOF WOOF!!!! :cool:

Bonnets are what young ladies wear on Easter. Carry on ...

Driver - Can I help it - that's what the mechanic called it! And I can't find ANYWHERE in the chassis manual where the "dog house" is!!! :cool: As far as I know, that's where DH gets sent to!

If you look between the two front seats you will likely see a raised, carpeted box (the dawghous). You should have a tool which will fit into a hole buried in the carper in the back of said box. Removing the box will grant access to the top of the engine and associated workings.

Is your mechanic English? Because under the Bonnet is under the hood to an Englishman, In the Boot would be in the Trunk, I know some of the phrases because I've owned Austin Healy's in the past and their manuals were printed in true English text! :whistling:
