Bonnet badge
« on: June 07, 2021, 18:02:38 »
Is it possible to remove the bonnet badge without removing the bonnet ? I know the back of the badge has a threaded stud and a locating pin on it but looking under the bonnet it appears these disappear into a box section ?

Ray,

When you open de bonnet, you can reach the little nut which is holding the badge.

or if you have small hands can go through the grille star center and reach up to the small 7mm nut inside with a ratchet on an extension bar.

I had a closer look this weekend through the grill star and cant see any nut visable just this box section. See pic.
Is mine different to others ?

Hi Ray,

Some picture:
•   First open a bit the hood
•   Then go via the grill star
•   And you will find the nut

Thanks Peter,

I am a bit baffled, looking at your picture it would appear that the bolt is in front of the box section ?

My photo is taken with the bonnet shut and if you expand the picture you can see clearly behind and in front of the box section and their appears to be nothing.

I will do as you have done and open the bonnet and have a look next time i,m at the garage and update situation.

I think your screw is about 1cm outside of the picture's top frame, a bit to the left...
