Re: Grand Scenic II Bonnet Stuck

As long as the release plate is moving freely, like Lancs Dave said, could just need a touch of adjustment.
Loosening the fixings (slightly) and a slight tap in the direction the release plate opens would be my first attempt.
Second would be old trick for final alignments.
Loosen fixings a touch more but not enough to let catch float. Hold release open and shut bonnet a few times, carefully opening each time. Usually manages to find the sweet spot.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
