Re. Front nose cone.

This is a constant problem and nothing seems to be done about it. Send it back, get your money back for the nose cone and the transport. Be aware though that most nose cones have problems no matter where you get them. Contact your supplier and tell them your problem and give them a chance to sort it out. Tell them you are claiming back transport costs. The problem is theirs, not yours.

I put one from Sparex on Dotty and it is around 10mm too small so the bonnet slopes forward and the radiator filler hose is not at the correct angle.

It is always best to repair an old one or pick up a good second hand one.

The nose cone is the same for both petrol and diesel although the radiator is different.

Thanks Mervyn.
I have bits of 3 that I sent to panel beater to turn into one (I think he has forgotten me). I'm looking at another (No. 4), poor on-line auction photos of course :( , that maybe only needs 'the bash' and not the complete reconstruction!
Wish me luck...
