Abstract

The assembly (10B), for a front bonnet (25) hinged at its rear and latched at the front, includes a hinge mounted to the body through a shear pin (15) and which is connected to a pyrotechnics cylinder assembly (23) fixed to the vehicle body. Operation of the pyrotechnics cylinder assembly (23) moves the piston within the cylinder upwards, shearing the pin (15) and lifting the hinge and the rear of the bonnet. The operation of the pyrotechnics cylinder assembly may simultaneously operate the bonnet release (26) at the front of the bonnet (25).
