    Hi,

    Has anyone changed a bonnet hinge on the R230? I've had one of the arms break on mine and wanted to change myself. May seem an easy fix but does anyone have any instructions on how best to do it. It looks like its riveted together so may need some professional tools.

    Any pointers happily received!!

    Thanks
    Titch

    Hi you will find it is bolted to the bonnet and lower down bolted to the inner wing, simple job just unbolt and adjust to level

    Tape a piece of foam/rag or cardboard around the sharp edged corner of the bonnet, so if it does slip or swing no damage will be caused

    Good thinking... In all honesty it's a bit damaged anyway when it gave way:neutral:
