I know this is not a new problem, but i've been unable to find a solution. I have a 1999 Renault Megane, it's been sitting around for some time and i've finally got around to sorting it out. I need to open the bonnet to replace the battery, check
e.t.c. and it's stuck.
This is not a new problem (for any renault owners from what I can tell lol), I have tried pushing down on the bonnet whilst operating the lever, I have tried pulling the cable from under the bonnet (via the bottom grill), have tried doing this whilst pushing down on the bonnet but neither have worked.
I have tried using a screwdriver but I can't honestly see where i'm supposed to be putting it, or in which direction. When I look in the small gap between the bumper and the bonnet there is a small lip before the latch which is making things more difficult.
The car is a non runner at the moment, i have no way to lift the car up to get under it so am really after a detailed explanation of the screwdriver option. I have got to get the bonnet open before I can do anything else with the car. I don't think the screwdriver i'm using is long enough so am about to go and buy a longer one.
Any advice, or maybe pictures or anything would be great. I've had a good look around on the internet and haven't been able to find anything in enough detail for a dumb blonde like me ;o)
Thanks in advance.
