Bonnet struts / bonnet alarm

Recommended Posts

I have installed bonnet struts today and as soon as I tried to lock the car the alarm would trigger. 

After a few tests I figured it was the bonnet alarm not being pushed down enough. So I applied a small 2mm sticky pad on the inside rand that's solved it. 

I did some googling to see how other people have solved this after installing the gas struts. I can see a lot of images where there is no bonnet pressure sensor at all.

I am wondering if it's the Scion or BRZ's that don't have it or they simply remove the bracket and sensor?

Thanks Lauren, that makes sense then.

 

Mike, I am very sure I did not knock it. 

I'll see if I can adjust it slightly as the tape is only temporary.

The plunger in the bonnet is on a light bracket, I knocked mine a few weeks back. With one hand you can put it back in place.
