    maybe the bonnet is out of align

    Hi,

    Try pushing one side or the other down as the catch is released, may work.

    Or the wine in me says throw it a bone, boxers usually open thier mouths for that :Doh:

    Sorry but its Saturday night

    At 6 months old it has the Peugeot warranty and as it a Peugeot part of the van that has the problem I would take it to your nearest Pug dealer.

    My van is also on the Peugeot Boxer chassis and I have had a few little niggles fixed by my local Peugeot dealer, as the Motorhome dealer is 300 miles away.
    The Peugeot dealer has been very helpful even though it was not bought directly from them....:thumb:

    Exactly, your servicing to maintain the warranty is in two parts, Habitation service by the Elddis dealer, cab and chassis by a Peugeot Dealer, your bonnet catch is the Peugeot dealers responsibility.
