How do I open the bonnet (Stupid question I know, sorry)

Post by lennysmobile on Sat Apr 02, 2011 5:37 pm

I have the Daihatsu Hijet, have had it for a few months. It didn't come with a handbook and I don't know how to check the water and oil.
Sorry for the stupid question but would really appreciate your kind answers!

a bit of groveling is required!
in each footwell should be an orange/red knob... these release the front panel. this will only give you access to the radiator cap.
lift the passenger seat to reveal the water coolant bottle, the washer bottle and oil filler cap.
lift the drivers seat will reveal the oil dip stick down the bottom of the engine.

mine had the orange knobs... as soon as i touched em they fell off in to the foot well!
got the front panel off.. it had been bodged/glued to stay in place!!!!!!

it now has 4 strips of sticky back Velcro which keeps the panel on.. much better me thinks! well it works!
