Laguna Phase 1,Drivers door lock, bonnet lever.

Having been given a 96 Laguna RXE (that a phase 1?) petrol.
Having lived 'Renault Forum' past month now trying to fix two common faults.

1. Bonnet initially stuck closed. Now opened but need to replace cab to bonnet cable as not snapped but stretched and not pulling enough distance to operate catch but cant get access to bold to remove from inside/ below steering wheel Replace bonnet lever / cable. Do i remove that lower facia which has fuse box attached? (How do i do that). I love the way the Haynes shows you a picture of bolt with facia removed!!
Can i adjust / take slack out of cable at that end as can see cable sliding through a nylon/plastic sleeve thing?

Checked locking (thank god for forum) Key fob works re: opens doors and allows to start. But drivers door not locking, key spins in lock. Is this a new lock???

Car drives great and being free don't mind spending a little / can fix stuff (20 years working on 60's volkswagens with no computers!!).

Anymore recommend good Renault non-dealership garage in South London??

Place to but second hand spares, these Laguna's are almost vintage now??
Currently in 68fastback's garage:
1996 Laguna RXE 2.0 Petrol, 1973 VW Campervan.
