    Hi all

    fitted my RS4 grill in- but now whenever I close the bonnet, the black lever/catch which sticks out doesnt come out properly meaning I have to pull it out further using pliers to open the bonnet again.

    Its fine if I hold the catch and let the bonnet close, but not on its own.

    Anyone else had this?

    yup same- got it from vag parts- must have been too forcefull fitting it or something /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    Removed the grill by popping it out with screwdriver and smothered (literally /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif) both bonnet catch and the other part on car with wd40 and left it a day and now its fine! Thanks to ajmckie et al /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif
