Re: Megane 225 Bonnet wont release

This is one of the most annoying things to happen... I had a similar occurance on my Gordini Turbo a few years ago and it cost me a new bonet :sob: I'd try running with Pats suggestion first but if it isn't a stuck catch then i'm afraid its most likely a snapped cable meaning a new bumper or bonet cos the current one will need to be broken to be removed in order to allow access to the catch mech. Maybe you could perform some negative G, upside down antics in the footwell to see the cabin catch lever end is still intact? This isn't to amuse me or passers by (honestly) but to confirm the cable is still sat in the plastic handle and that its not snapped away?
