E Pace bonnet alignment

Post by CaptainM4 » Tue Mar 24, 2020 7:42 pm

Does anybody know how to adjust bonnet alignment?
My front N/S corner sits high - the rear edges both sit slightly low. The front gap also seems excessive.
I sheared a small shouldered fastener today attempting a tweak. Only the whole hinge is available as a spare part, but an allen bolt restored the existing level of misalignment.
All help appreciated.

Hi, to get the front corners down the "U" shaped hooks have a nut that you turn, to adjust the gap between the bonnet and bumper slacken the bolts and push, I added some shim washers on mine to lift it slightly, have never messed with rear, the hinges are designed to lift the bonnet if a pedestrian is hit, hope this helps you, Tony

I’ve seen a lot of e paces with only one of the two latches closed properly. There is one on each side of the front of the bonnet. So make sure you push down on Both sides if the bonnet appears uneven.
On delivery the rear of my bonnet was set ~3mm low compared with the fenders. Jaguar fixed this at the first service. Now perfect!

Seems to be a common problem but worse on F Paces . My car had to be realigned at delivery.

I also rejected two Fpaces as they couldn't get the bonnet alignment correct.
