Mine's tight as well. In fact, when we were looking at the car, the seller struggled to get it open at all.

It seems better now (I've been poking and prodding about under the bonnet a bit) but still needs a helping hand occasionally.

Cheers

I had a similar problem with mine. The Garage turned the two front bonnet rubbers a tad and then tried it and it sprang up a teat

Thanks to all, with a bit of WD40 and grease it worked a treat.

Re: Renault Scenic - Bonnet difficult to open*fixed*

WD40 is not lube oil or grease or any kinda oil based LUBRICANT!!! It's a low CH3 based petroleum based oil .....good for penetration .......to free- up "stuck metal stuff" it's gone with vapours , phew! I feel the vapours coming on now ...use a really low oil fractionate ..I.e simple grease (white!) .like farmers with a welding plant-----or easystart... Damage done.
