More accurately how to raise the windscreen wipers without scratching the paint on the edge of the bonnet. I raised the drivers side wiper and immediately took the paint off the edge of the bonnet facing it. Small but annoying., But I can't raise the wiper high enough to easily access it. I must be doing it incorrectly.

Many owners have fallen for this problem.
Trying to lift up the blades when washing the car etc.
Resulting in the edge of the bonnet getting scratched.
I would get it touched in ASAP before you forget and any chance of corrosion sets in.
MG touch up sticks are about £20.
Ask me how I know 🤣.

Yes - It's on the very back edge of the bonnet, so you will not notice the touch in when it's done.
Apply the paint with a very fine brush, build it up in light thin coats.
The brush supplied is to thick and will apply to much paint at one time.
Do not to bring the paint onto the face of the bonnet !.
My previous ZS EV was finished in Tri-Coat Dynamic Red.
In the touch up kit, you will get one bottle of the coloured base coat red and also a bottle of the clear ( ish ) lacquer.

Switch the car off and immediately flick the wiper switch.
They will go into a vertical park mode from which they can be lifted safely.
It's all in the owners manual :)
