    bonnet catch for Citroen C8 ?? 23rd Dec 06 at 6:33 PM
    OH has a Citroen C8 nearly new and needs to find the bonnet catch to open the bonnet and refill windscreen washer bottle.

    Despite everyone looking at manual it is just not apparent where the catch is inside the car, is there anyone out there with a Citroen C8 who can tell us where the internal bonnet release catch is...please.

    Every car i've every had has had the release somewhere around the drivers footwell (normally on the right side)

    Another forum suggests:

    It is at the side of the front passenger seat (left hand side of car) under a big plastic cover with a picture of a car with the bonnet up!

    Thanks everyone, we're going to give it a try tomorrow. The manual has no picture but just mentions removing the it rather sounds like you suggest zappahey. OH didn't fancy trying to pull off panels without knowing what he was doing.

    I've got a C3 and my bonnet release catch is much more obvious!
