    Question "How to" GU Bonnet Scoop Removal - a question about the rubber shroud.

    Hi All,

    Just bought a big mouth scoop to replace my standard GU scoop with 6 x 10mm nuts to remove and replace easy as right? It is, except removing the rubber shroud with a steel retaining bracket that is clipped on with plastic clips under the bonnet.

    Before I totally make a mess of it, I thought I would ask if anyone has experience taking it off first. I checked the Y61 Manual section and no luck, searched the forums and tried Professor Google.

    I have no idea how to access the clips and so on; they appear hidden away.

    Yeah undo the nuts on the under side, the metal brace comes off, then the rubber, then the scoop from the top. Simple. Hit the bonnet with some polish after the scoop is off too.

    So Pete, where did you get a big mouth scoop. I thought the guy had stopped production?

    bloody hell thats cheap. I paid $550 for the A.R.E Cooling scoop about 4 years ago. Then sold it for $350 a couple of years later.

    Just ordered one so if they are no good we can both blame Ropes.

    Back on topic, I feel like a bit of a Noob as I cannot for love or money find where the nuts underneath are to take the metal brace off... The foam seal isn't glued over the top of it is it?

    The lower black plate needs to come off first, from memory its longer than the rubber itself. So it may look deceiving.
    See the black plate in the pic, its longer to match the longer hole in the bonnet.
