Question about 2005 Renault R5
Hi just bought a renault laguna and cant pop bonnet to check engine etc cable is snapped,is there an easy way to do this or does it need to go to a garage,
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.
