Hello Santiago,welcome to the forum.

The Laguna 1 has two bonnet catches,one on each corner.The catch in the centre is only the safety catch,the 2 side ones actually hold the bonnet shut.The catches are fairly straight foward to replace and,from memory,the connecting cable is also easy to change.The main cable from the handle inside the car is a slightly different matter though,unless you like standing on your head for an hour!!.
Just one point,make sure the new catch/es and cables work before you shut the bonnet........if they don't you'll have a real headache trying to get the bonnet open(been there,done that!!)

Good luck,and let us know how it goes.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
