Re: scenic bonnet release -it won't!

Had this issue with a megane. Managed to squirt some easing oil in through the grill in the general direction of the bonnet latch & spring.

After some cussing, got someone to pull, not heave, on the release lever and keep it pulled while I tugged the edge of the bonnet up.

The problem is the collet holding the spring, poking down from the centre of the bonnet isn't travelling up and down the post in the centre of the spring. So when you do eventually release it, try and get some grease on the centre pole, push the sping up and down a couple of times to get it moving freely.
