Re: My Oil Light Comes On When Going Round Bends..
The red lever is the safety catch .. so if the bonnet pops up it is supposed to stop it flying right open. That might move, but it won't release the bonnet catch.
But you're in the right area ... it's just the release you want is behind that black plastic piece in the middle which, in turn, is behind the main grille.
Unlikely you will get the slats out without breaking something. There have two screws at the top which connect the metal cross member and pins at the bottom that fit into the bumper (I think).
I you can get into the side, you will have to lever up that black plastic piece in the middle to get to the catch. That's part #2 in the 2nd picture.
