Check your plugs again, make sure they aren't gunked up already or covered in oil or anything. Double check the spark gaps on them as well.

The dashboard is easy to take off, there are screws on the bottom underneath the dash holding it on and at the top are clips that should pop off and if you are careful, they won't break. It should come off from the driver side to the passenger side.

SOURCE: bonnet wont open on reault laguna

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.

SOURCE: how to fit cam belt to renault megane 1.5 dynamique diesel 2004

not difficult with the right equipment ,firstly you will need a special tool to lock the crankshaft in place ,then another special tool than aligns the tdc this goes through the cylinder block at the front right hand side by taking a bolt out in the block thats just in front of the bell housing .The special tools cost an arm and a leg trust me and then the pulley bolt has to be pulled up to 130lbs ,the bottom pulley does not have a keyway so without the right tools its very easy to let the engine turn and clout the valves which breaks the camshaft bearing caps with relative ease .the kit you need can be bought and its kit number AST4390 plus the locking pieces for the flywheel .This is not a weekend mechanic type job ,yes its easy with the right tools but even myself will slacken tensioner and remove the cam before i start so valves cannot catch when i turn engine over on starter with a big bar on the pulley nut ,then change the belt then with assistant holding a snap on heel bar in the flywheel ring gear whilst i hammer the bottom pulley bolt with the air wrench ,then use the 80cm knuckle bar and have a good grunch to make sure its really tight or it WILL TURN and the valves hit and break and imbed themselves in the pistons and smash the cam bearing caps .This is not a job for the faint hearted ,their is a timing mark on the flywheel looking from the top through a elongated hole and TDC is a longer tooth ,the inspection slot is about 3cms down from the crank sensor

Safety catch on hood wont release and hood wont re latch!


I would check to see if the hood release moves when the inside lever is pulled then pushed, if not the cable and latch mechanism may need lubrication or be broken.

Why wont my fuel door pop open?


There will be a small flat spring attached under a small screw ( rivet ) that presses on the base of the hinge when closed . They have a habit of breaking off and so the door will not pop open when activated . Have a friend activate the flap and at the same time press on the door near the hinge and it will open enough to get a finger under the door to open it. With a bit of luck the spring may be still in the caveity near the filler tube.

I removed door panel to install speakers now the door wont close


You need to make sure the panel is on perfect. If it is a little off, it will catch the ends. Is the inner panel catching the door? If you added bigger speakers, it may catch on the inner part of the door, closet to the speakers.

Opened my hood to give a buddy a boost now it wont close for me any tips


No good deed goes unpunished. It sounds like the secondary safety catch is bent and not going into it's opening. Look at where the pointy catches enter the front frame of the car and make sure they line up as you close the hood. If they do line up, it's possible that the catch that springs against the hood pin is frozen or stuck. Spray some penetrating oil into the latch mechanisms at the front frame of the car and also try pushing the release lever inside the car back into the closed position. Sometimes they get stuck in the open position.

My trunk no longer shuts on my 97 seville, any suggestions


Assuming no accident damage check the catch itself in the trunk lid, using a screw driver try to toggle the lasch, it should be rfee but has a strong spring to pop the lid up when opened, also try spraying some penetrating oil as likely it has become sticky with age and water.
