my mrs tried to put the hood down on wednesday but it stopped after lifting a couple of inches so she called the RAC, a very nice man came out to her. he done is bit and said must be a problem with a senser or maybe the motor has given up.
i looked at it, bit of a fiddle with the luggage tray and a play with the manual key and all sorted.
he hadn't put the hood cover down properly, hadn't clicked in to place.
note. watch that luggage tray!!!!
