Seat Leon >> Closing the bonnet

– Raise the bonnet slightly.
– Release the bonnet stay and replace it in its support.

• After closing the bonnet, always check that it is properly secured. The bonnet must be flush with the surrounding body panels.
• If you notice that the bonnet latch is not secured when the vehicle is moving, stop the vehicle immediately and close the bonnet properly. Risk of accident.
