Laguna II Bonnet release

Hi All,

I have a 2003 Laguna II that has been sitting dormant for 10 months. Battery has gone dead so central locking is not working. Emergency key in key card does not work (as the keys were replaced 2 years ago and the dealer didnt change the emerg key over!!). Does any one know how to open the bonnet extrnally or will it be a case of putting the window in??!!??

Hope someone can help!

Re: Laguna II Bonnet release

Its pretty easy once you have the plastic engine under-shield off.
Once you have this removed you can see (with a torch) the bonnet catch, you will need a long flat bladed screwdriver, put the blade in between the cable eye on the catch and the flat metal strip next to it and twist the bonnet just pops open, easy .

Hope this helps

If you can get underneath and remove the under tray and using a spare battery and jump leads it is possible to connect a temporary 12 volt supply via the heavy starter cable long enough to get the central locking system to operate to gain access.
