    hood storage catch

    Hello all,
    Has anybody got a picture of a standard hood catch in situ, i.e. built in? Or maybe a PDF-file of any manual with a picture? I am afraid the workshop manual and the owners' manual do not show this detail.
    Best wishes,
    Dieter - from Germany.

    HI Dieter

    By hood, do you mean the bonnet (over the engine) or the soft top (which we might also call a hood unfortunately) catch?

    I can go take a picture if you tell me which one.

    Cheers

    Gord

      Gord,
      I mean the stowage catch for the soft top!
      Best wishes,
      Dieter.

        Depends what aspect you're looking for - these two pics are from my library, but I can do another few if you say what bit you need Dieter. I'm assuming you mean the soft top retaining latches and not the stowage cover latches.

          Drew, In fact I mean the soft top retaining latches - seen from the side. Best wishes, Dieter.

            Then I'm lost.... I don't know of any soft top storage catches other than the ones in my piuctures (although they are not so easy to see as they are quite buried in the frame mechanism) which are used to latch the rear of the soft top to the main vertical frame part before it is stored in the well.

              Yes, Drew! These are the catches I need photos of. Could you please email me these two pics to "dhimarshall@gmx.de"? Maybe you have another photo showing how and where these latches are fixed to the frame? Best wishes, Dieter.

                Dieter,
                This video might be of benefit, though it does show old & new catches

                    Dieter, I owe you a public apology. I offered to take pictures and then became sidetracked and failed to come back to you. Sorry!

                      No worries,
                      I am glad about all sorts of info - however late they might be!
                      Best wishes,
                      Dieter.
