Picture of Bobcat E80 Right Hand Catch Repair

this is my first instructable.
had problems opening the hood to check fluids and charging the battery.

so when i FINALLY got it open i removed the Catch PN 7012749 or 7005859,

then after i inspected the mechanism i discovered the lever to pin gap was too great to allow full movement of the pin.

Step 1: Dissassembly
