Angry Renault Laguna II - Bonnet Won't Open


I thought bonnet problems were exclusively reserved to the Laguna I but, surprise surprise, it appears not.

I can't open my bonnet on a 2002 1.9dci Initiale.

99% sure cable isn't broken. I can hear it operating the catch at the front of the bonnet.

Took it to local dealer, who said, no problem we'll take off the under tray and reach up to release it.

Hour an a half later they return to say they can't reach it and have no other ideas.

I've tried the usual "push on the bonnet" while someone else works the lever, but that doesn't work, despite a few encouraging load clicks.

I've even dismantled the handle end in the car so that I can yank hard on the cable. Don't want to pull too hard cos replacement cable is expensive and a nightmare to fit round the back of the dash.

Anyone any ideas, PLEASE!!!!! is offline
