Hey all. My zoes bonnet rattles and its driving me crazy. I cannot figure out how to adjust it. There are 4 posts about 4 inches tall but they seem fixed. There isnt anything you can adjust as far as I can see. Any help appreciated.

Have you checked that's there's nothing loose under there? You could try packing a piece of cardboard on the posts (temporarily) to see if the rattle stops. That would show if they need adjusting. Do the posts have threads on them?

Do you have some electrical insulation tape lying around or anything like that? Rubbery stuff. One wind of it around the catch loop on the bonnet fixed it for me.

I think the 'proper' way is loosening the bolts on the catch mechanism and shifting it down a mm or so (there are youtube videos for normal cars if you search 'bonnet rattle fix' or 'hood rattle fix') but it doesn't look easy to get to on a Zoe with all the surrounding plastic so the tape was good enough for me.
