    Bonnet not opening

    Today I was washing my car after which I tried to open the bonnet to check fluids and then I find that the bonnet clip is not working at all.
    I know that it's just a removable clip but somehow it's not working.

    What to do now

    Push downwards on the bonnet, not too hard, where the lock mechanism is and then try opening from inside again. Should open.

    Rubbery Gear Shift !!!

    Hi New Gen Fiat owners,

    I have been hearing about the "Rubbery Gear shift" for FIAT cars in almost all the reviews. I own a Fiat Palio for last 6 years. In my experiance, mostly the gear shift is OK but at times I am getting screechy sound while engaging the reverse gear. Also at times, feels that I need to search for the correct slot to while engaging the first and reverse gears. It feels a bit tough also for the first, second and reverse gears. Is this what is meant by the term "Rubbery Gear Shift" ? Or is there any thing else to it to be scared off ? :(

    Also I faced some issues an year back, when my gear got stuck and I was not able to change gears while the engine is running. Later it was diagnosed as clutch master/slave assembly problem by concorde service center and they have replaced it. And this is the only problem I faced with my Palio in last 6 years.

    I almost finalized my next car as Linea T Jet (waiting for the re-launch), so would like to hear from Linea/Punto owners of their experiances/issues on the gear shift. :)

    Bonnet lever not working!!!

    Bonnet lever is not working cant open the bonnet noticed it yesterday while cleaning the car.
    What are the options? When I pull the lever can hear "tick " sound inside the engine bay but the bonnet
    does not open.

    These issues need to be solved by the service centers only. What suggestion can anybody on the forum make? The bonnet opening mechanism consists of a handle inside, an actuating wire and a lock. If it is pulled and the lock doesnt release, it is a mechanical issue to be dealt with by the FASC alone.

    Happened with me too,it is because of the wire which is connected to the bonnet lever.If bonnet is not opening then give little pressure on the bonnet where this lock is fixed.Press the bonnet 2-3 times and bonnet will open.

    Once the bonnet is opened up you see a black wire which is connected to the bonnet latch,You can easily see that wire,now straightened the wire with hands,this wire sometimes twists and turns and as a result jams the bonnet.

    Its simpler DIY and really works.

    i tried the same approach and still no results. Thankfully all the fluids are at optimum levels so i'm taking it easy on this one.
