    Cleaning A124 Hood Liner

    Been playing around with a vacuum steam cleaner, looks promising so far. Although it's hard to get an absolute even finish I can see it's an improvement.

    Bonnet catches

    The bonnet catches on my R129 are playing up, once opened they don't want to close normally. I need to get my hand on to the actual cable and pull each side to manually close the catch, then close the bonnet and hope it latches. Has anyone else had this problem and what fixes are out there?
