Re: laguna mk1 bonnet lock

you need to get the car jacked up high (or on a ramp) and reach up to the NS and either pull the cable with your fingers or use a long screwdriver to flick the NS lock open. it helps if someone is in front of the car to puch down on the bonnet to release the sprung load of the bonnet spring.

expect torn knuckles and lots of black gunk/grease.

(or take it round your local indy and have them pop it up on a ramp to release it. 5-10 should grease thier palms enough for the 5 minute job)
