There are two release catches about 15" to the right and left of the centre safety catch. Roughly at each end of the top of the radiator.
The bonnet release cable goes first to the right hand one then there is a wire from that to the left, in a daisy chain way. They are typically French, cables fit into plastic levers ( a bit like bike brakes) not metal which break easily. replacements are not cheap. You need to be able to pull the cable to both catches to get the bonnet up. I managed to do this from underneath. In my case the, left hand one was broken and right hand one was working, but the getting it open broke the bit that that pulls the left. Managed to away with buying just one new catch as they are identical, swopping the right partly broken one over to the left side.

sounds like the cable has snapped which pulls the window up and down the runners. you can get the kit from ebay look for RENAULT LAGUNA 2 ELECTRIC WINDOW REGULATOR REPAIR KIT there is one company that even give you an instructional video to follow, really not that hard to do, have done several now for myself and friends
hi, If the cable is snapped in your car, then get underneath the car.Try to reach the catch and flip it manually.If you are unable to reach it with bare hands, a bent metal hanger would help to do it.Now,open the bonnet. You can reach the parts in bonnet now. If you are uncomfortable or unable to do it, please call a "Repair person" in the nearest locality to help you.Have a nice day.Please rate my solution as helpful.
Hi this was exactly the problem i had with my Laguna 1.9dci its a sensor switch on the steering column. Cricical circuit to the car. so will not run without it. afraid you will have to replace the sensor. had to get renault to do mine.
when you say the bonnet has been pushed in do you mean like in a traffic accident if this is the case then is your grill damaged,the reason i say this is the only way you are going to open your bonnet is through your grill so a replacement grill will be needed.if you take this course of action,take a torch and look up under the bonnet you will se the bonnet realease at the very front of your bonnet it will have the bonnet realease cable attached you might need help at this stage,get a friend to push down on your bonnet,put your hand in and push or pull the lever until it releases as this works on a hook system and with the damage it might need a pretty stronge screwdriver to force it always remember the radiator is very easly damaged and very costly to replace .Hope this will help you get your bonnet open .adrian
Try the relays under the bonnet fuse box 4 small black ones in a line, the first 2 from top cut of the fuel pump, and are a renowned cause of 85% of cranking without starting faults on the dci engine swap them over for the bottom 2 . If it starts, buy 2 from Renault and fit if the engine still fails to start the egr valve may be stuck closed starving the engine of air, its on the top of the engine at the air intake and has 3 bolts, remove it and clean it with carb cleaner then check its condition, if it appears ok, replace the cleaned one, if not you need a new one or the turbo will blow its seals and the engine will rev and burn on the engines own oil. beyond this and your diy fixes are at an end without a obd2 code reader.
hi main engine fuses are normally located under the bonnet situated near the battery usually not far away check the inner wing under the bonnet on the same side of battery the fuse boxes are not tiny and should be marked yates210456
your problem sounds like a weak batery. fit jump leads and try again. the starter has to be taken out from underneath. its located behind the engine block. the bolts are accesable from under the bonnet
I took my 99 Laguna to my local mechanic with a stuck bonnet. He pulled the lever from inside and told me to press down on the bonnet at the same time then open the bonnet as normal with the outside catch. It worked ok. After doing it oil the catch mechanism and it now works ok-but best to keep trying it to stop it seizing again.
