A bit of bonnet maintenance has led to a puzzle, the LH diaphragm in the image above has a return edge.
This tucks above the air duct as shown pointed at with the screwdriver in the image below

My question is that once the bonnet flange I'm holding up in the next image is bonded to the centre panel, I can't see how you would be able to remove the diaphragm as it will be trapped, is this the case or am I missing something? Any help as always greatly appreciated

Hi James,
Yes you are right.
It is quite difficult to remove the diaphragm once the flange is fitted, but not impossible.
It is a long time since I have done it, but you may have to loosen the duct, or possibly even the wing to wriggle it out. :sad:
