  1. Hi Guys,

    My bonnet on the megane will not close.

    It just doesnt go past the latch- I have tried to use WD40 on the mechaism .

    When you use the internal lever in the passenger seat- part of the mechanism operates but the hook doesn't seem to move?

    did you sort it?
     
  3. Nope , unsure how to - sprayed it with WD40 and when I go to close it just doesnt seem to want to lock on the main closing catch
     
  4. Have you stuck a screwdriver in the latch to see if it moves. It’s not in the locked position already before your trying to shut it
     
  5. Yeah I think it is in the locked position- its down?

    I have tried to move the latch up with a screwdriver but it doesnt seem to move.

    Had issue on my Megane 3 DCi where it wouldn’t latch.

    Degreased the catch then used WD40 to lubricate and second person to pull the handle inside while I made it latch manually. Repeat until it work consistently.

    most likely will be the retaining clip that latches it that’s stuck.
