SOURCE: renault clio bonnet wont open
Get a second person to pull bonnet catch and you push up and down on the bonnet whilst catch is being pulled. 1, cable possibly stretched, 2, look at bonnet catch under the coloum to see if wire is attached, 3, try and lie under car and look up the back of the bulkhead to see the catch and release it manually. Hope that helps.

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.

you will find a black lever either on the right or left kick plate (that is the trim piece from the floor to the dash on the outer floor pan) inside the car, under the shelf, under the glovebox depending whether left or right hand drive.is is a bit dark to see it tucked up as it is.

I have a 2005 Renaultsports Megane 225 and need to open my bonnet to charge battery. Tried pulling on the lever inside the car but cant get the bonnet to even pop up. I have pulled on the outside lever within the grill, but to no luck.
Can anyone suggest a way of opening my bonnet...?

Under the car:
You will be able to open the hood if you pull off your splash guard and use a long long flat head screwdriver or something like that. You'll see the hood latch in front of the radiator with the cable attached to it at the top near the hood, put it on the drivers side edge of the bottom of the latch and pry to the passenger side, the lever moves from the drivers side to the passengers side, the cable basically pulls the top of it to achieve this. so your doing the same thing on the bottom with the screwdriver.
Release the latch from underneath by the lever that you have to pry towards the passenger side. Then open the hood, and replace the safety release mechanism broken cable.
Please do rate my response. Thanks!
