opening the Jimny bonnet

Discussion in 'uk.rec.cars.4x4' started by perkal, May 19, 2004.

    Hi all,

    I recently bought a Suzuki Jimny (wide). Before buying, the saleman showed
    me the engine by opening the front bonnet. After bringing home, I'm really
    having a hard time finding the switch or lever to open it. I know this
    sounds silly, but I can't find it anywhere within reach to the drivers seat.

    Thanks,
    perkal

    Open the glove box, and look or feel along the inside top of the glove box
    opening. There is a lever to pull, looks like the handle on a lawnmower pull
    cord.

    (Just slide your fingers along the bonnet opening and you'll find it.)

    it's there for security, lock the glove box and if anyone breaks into the
    car they will have a job opening the bonnet.

    It's there to increase spare parts sales - if anyone breaks into the car,
    you'll need to replace the glovebox lid and probably part of the dash when
    they crowbar it open.

    Perhaps it can be booby trapped with the passenger airbag?
