Yes, but it may not be a simple DIY job.... do you have a problem?  Is the car still under warranty?

Sometimes some one pushing on the bonnet while you pull the release catch does the trick.

There will be a place to pry with a pry bar to release the bonnet catch. Maybe worth searching YouTube to see if anyone has done this before, or contacting your nearest dealer or independent Renault specialist if you have one

This has worked on a previous cars for me. Get someone to open the catch inside the car and at the same time smack hard with your two hands on the bonnet be careful not to damage the bonnet
