    Hi i have a problem with my 04 3.2 quattro sport. The alarm has started to trigger randomly. The on board computer shows the bonnet is open which is setting the alarm off.Well the bonnet is well and truley shut. Any one with suggestions would b much appreciated......think the neighbours are not overly happy being woken at 3 in the morning.

    Is the bonnet switched controlled, if so check the connections etc. on it as it may be something simple??

    front wheel arch liner badly split(drivers side) torrential rain for the last few days ......which is when it started. New liner in garage will get fitted asap and hope for the best. cannot feel moisture anywhere though.Needs fitting anyway so "ill do it tomorrow" really will become ill do it tommorow. many thanks for words of wisdom

    Will probably be the wiring to the bonnet sensor. Cant remember off the top of my head where exactly its located, im sure someone will come along to tell you.
