Fitting the Bonnet

One of the more problematic areas for MGTD owners is in fitting the bonnet. The procedure is actually quite straight forward but must be followed precisely. This page will provide you with step by step instructions on how to achieve a tight fitting bonnet.

The bonnet (or hood in American lingo) covers the engine compartment on the MGTD. It spans the distance from the cowl to the radiator. If done correctly the fit of the bonnet should be very tight with no more than 1/8 of gap between the rubber strip on the cowl and/or the radiator shell. If your bonnet does not fit correctly there is either an installation problem or your car has been damaged. In almost all cases its the former. If you follow these instructions you should be able to achieve a satisfactory and tight fit of your bonnet.
