This is a known problem on Lagunas apparently. When it fails completely and
the bonnet won't open at all, it can be expensive to fix, so fix it while
you still can. Some people have claimed it helps if you get a friend to
selectively push down on various parts of the lid while you pull, perhaps
trying to disengage the two catches one at a time.
It might be necessary to change the cable if it has become stretched, but
simply cleaning out and lubricating the catches often seems to help. They
work a bit like car door catches, and their operation should be obvious once
all the crud has been wiped away.
Re: Laguna bonnet release
John, could you explain roughly how its done? Mines completely stuck on the
passenger side, I've taken the under tray off & moved a piece of ducting out
of the way so I can see & get access to the catch, but I cant tell whether
it needs pushing/pulling or whatever!! The bonnet was stuck shut when I got
the car so I've never had the chance to see how the mechanism works, cheers
