Re: Release Laguna electric handbrake without starting engine

In the boot there should be an emergency release.
On Scenics it is just behind rear seats by the spare wheel well.
Dunno where on Lagunas but would be surprised if not thereabouts.
Lift your boot carpet and have a look.
They are usually bright red covers with all sort of warning stickers. A big yellow handle like a lawn mower pull start.
Good tug and you should here a loud clunk as the cables are released.
Have it chocked/in gear before as it will runaway given chance.
Needs to be reset with the dashboard manual handle....
There is a thread on that somewhere
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
