Default Tegiwa CF cooling plate

Tried fitting this last night, but once fitted my bonnet wouldn't close, any recommendations on how to fit it?

Indeed, that thing is in desperate need of a clean!
Can you see any contact marks on the carbon?

Yes cleaning the bay is on my long to do list.

No marks on the carbon, only thing I notice when I searched for other brands of these plates is that they have a larger cut out for where the bonnet latches.

Loosen all the bolts so it can move around freely, close the bonnet then open again and tight

Do you feel it bottoming out somewhere or just the catch is not locking onto the bonnet?

I had a plate that was almost identical to this one, and the underside of the bonnet rubbed on it.

You could raise the height of the bonnet catch slightly by slackeing the bolts and moving the catch a tad higher, and also adjust the rubber bonnet stops; this may alter the panel gap between the bonnet and front bumper however. I think I did the above and reduced the amount of contact rather than eliminating it entirely.

I fitted a Alloycraft one and had a similar problem. But when i installed mine i hadn't removed a stock part from in the seal at those 5 bolts at the front.



Part 3 in this diagram. If thats still there, removing it should help.

Don't have that seal, it went missing along with the rubber when I had my bumper re-sprayed, only just recently replaced the rubber, thinking that I won't need the seal with the cooling plate.

No point in dressing up an engine bay that looks like that, shame on you!

Get it sorted
