Re: Grand scenic (2006)...bonnet won't stay fully closed?

Assuming the cable moves freely, there is a spring against which you push down to close fully. A crescent-shaped blade (on a Lag2 anyway) then engages with the spigot on the bonnet. If it's not engaging it may be gummed up or rusty.
I freed ours with WD40 but a bit of grease afterwards would help.
