    Have you turned it both ways?

    One way to pop the boonet, then the other way releases it to allow you to open it!::bigsmile:

    Yes , I repair lots of them.
    Sometimes push the key HARD into the lock and turn left.
    Other times hold key to the left and thump the middle of the bonnet with other hand.
    The bonnet or front panel go out of alignment sometimes,hold key to the left and try pulling the bonnet towards or away from you.
    When if flips open turn to right.:thumb:
