the bonnet spring assmebly under the hood came apart on me as the plastic molded bit at the bottom broke into 5 peices.
now peugeot want $50 for this as you get the spring and bolt etc and cant but the bit i need by itself.
wreckers -same deal but $33 if you can find one.
now i didnt want to spend this money so i rigged up something from old parts.
i used the rubber bolt mounts that are usually used with the compressor to keep it in place without vibration in the mounts at the front of the engine ,on top of sump.
these fit perfectly in place where the moulded bit was and have a washer built in to add strength.after a bit of fiddling to get the bonnet to sit right height it works well.
not a big deal really but a money saver.-BAZZ
