Just had this problem myself on my 206. The lever in car was not opening bonnet. Had no idea whether it was the lever, cable or lock. The car was taken to it to garage to be fixed. Was told that the catch/lock mechanism had totally ceased- was shown the old lock and it had indeed beyond any DW40 assistance. When I asked how they managed to get bonnet open to find out what was wrong, was told that that there is a way of doing this by going underneath the car and taking out (unscrewing) lock mechanism which should release bonnet albeit with lock attached. Imagine that this is an awkward job given that the 206 has no front grill that can make access to lock easier. But it might be a start in terms of finding out whats wrong. The cost of the job was £60. On another note, I have had a 206 for less than a year and have to say given the increasing catalogue of things that have gone wrong and mainly silly things (heater, indicator unit, water leaking onto driver side back seat) which from looking on other Peugeot sites appear to be common problems, I m not that impressed with this car at all. Need less to say I m really looking forward to taking it through its MOT in a few months time.
