Bonnet release catch on Scenic

Hello, can anyone help me with a faulty bonnet release catch on a Megane Scenic, Fidji, 16V, 2003.

The primary bonnet catch (cable operated) does not lock. The bonnet is being held closed by the secondary (manual) catch, however this will still be an MOT fail.

I can move the catch to it's closed position by pressing it with a screwdriver, and it returns to the open position when I stop pressing it. I don't know if is supposed to open without pulling the release lever (with bonnet open), but it does not seem to be 'hooking' the metal bar on the bonnet when it is closed.
Any ideas?
