    simple and easy to fit

    They are a plastic item and in time will perish but great to find someone who keeps spares at a reasonable price

    So much better than replacing a built in 20+ year old extractor

    Thank you to the e-spares community who gave helpful fitting instructions and even more advice than the original installation manual. I couldn't have done it without you! The photo in the installation guide, my actual broken part, the on-line photo all looked different, but I took heart from your words that this part would fit Neff AND IT DID! Filter is back up and hanging securely after being washed. If it helps anybody else, I poured boiling water through the metal mesh a few times and that took most of the grease out of the filter. Then I ran it through the pots and pans cycle of my dishwasher and it came out good as new and fresh as a daisy!

I have just received my order for the new cookerhood mechanical locks and have tried to get them to fit but they just don't. One of my locks is already in place so I just needed one for the other side. I have tried every which way to fit them but they just won't fit together. When I try fitting them together without the hood inbetween they don't either. Do I have faulty locks?

  • Rubber mallet strategically applied (on the chopping board did to protect my work surface) the trick!! By EllieMay - - 08 May 2011
  • There is a photo guide on the e-spares website. Just place the hood on a hard surface, insert the pin from underneath; locate the lock part (red) on top of the pin head and tap sharply once with a hammer. Just check first that the pin is intact and that the hole in the red locking part is free. When the catches failed for us, the pin had broken off in the red lock.

  • They can only fit together one way - there is an oblong shape on the grey part which should match up with the oblong hole on the red part. Lie your cooker hood on a work surface inside uppermost, insert the grey part from underneath, line up red part from the top and just lock them together by tapping sharply with a hammer.

    Hi Library Get ready, this is a technical one! The following link is to Bosch's website, where you can access line drawings for your specific Bosch cooker hood. First click the 'United Kingdom' link. On the next page you have to type your model number in the 'E-number' field of 'Appliance search', located on the right hand side of the page. This should then bring up the line drawings for your cooker hood and instruct you how to fit your locks. Good luck! P.S. If you are having trouble locating the model number on your cooker, check our guide to locating model numbers here:
