ok, gonna start by saying i know next to nothing about cars, so dont use fancy words in your answers
The battery has died on my Laguna (W reg, 1.8) and i cant open the bonnet. The same happened about 12 months ago and i got a local garage to sort it out, but this time its gonna be a pain to get it towed down there because of the flat battery.
I read some previous posts which mentioned getting under the dash and pulling the cable with some grips, but that just resulted in me nearly breaking my eye socket. No matter how hard i pulled, nothing opened.
I understand there are 2 catches that need to release, but neither of them are.
Is there an easy way for me to open the bonnet before i have to resort to professional help? Someone suggested pulling the cable while someone bounces the bonnet up and down to help release the catches.
