I have started Mk1 of of a different approach, using a solenoid direct to bonnet catch, looks doable, if I keep car :x
I think I'll parent this and offer it to JLR as an approved accessory. Eseential in the RHD market! :lol: :lol: :lol:

To be fair Jag is not the only offender in this matter, plenty of other makes are the same. I'm sure if pressed the excuse would be that there are far more LHD models sold than RHD. My stance is, that if you can change the steering column and all the other stuff, WHY not the bonnet control as well? Especially with XEs where it needs to be opened SO OFTEN!!!!
