The engine cover is attached to the body by means of a hinge at the front edge. The engine cover lock is operated by means of a cable.
The engine cover is equipped with two grilles for the passage of air from the engine compartment.
However it is call the hood in US and Canada and bonnet in most Commonwealth countries, is the hinged cover over the engine of motor vehicles that allows access to the engine compartment (or trunk on rear-engine and some mid-engine vehicles) for maintenance and repair. In British terminology, hood refers to a fabric cover over the passenger compartment of the car (known as the 'top' in the US). In many motor vehicles built in the 1930s and 1940s, the resemblance to an actual hood or bonnet is clear when open and viewed head-on; in modern vehicles it continues to serve the same purpose but no longer resembles a head covering.
