Re: Bonnet stuck

Common problem on the Scenic get some one to lift the bonnet as you pull the release handle.

Usually the release mechanism stops working properly due to rust. Spray the mechanism with WD40 or similar use a round shafted screwdriver to lock the mechanism with the bonnet up and release it again with the handle and keep applying penetrating oil and working the mechanism until it starts to work properly again.
