Bonnet catch stuck

I have that trouble with my 1997 Laguna estate and it's only one of the catches that sticks - the drivers side catch - probably because it's at the end of the release mechanism cable. The passenger sides catch always opens.

The only way to open the bonnet is to press down on it above the area where the catch is, give it a really good shove down taking care not to dent the bonnet. Ideally one person pressing down on the bonnet while the other pulls the release lever. However, if you're on your own you can free the catch by alternately pushing the bonnet and pulling the release mechanism.

No matter how often you grease it, you'll probably have trouble with it. Hope this helps.
