The brown-ish colour seems to be related to corrosion (any thoughts folks)?

If so, the replacement of these parts should be part of the "maintenance" of the bonnet catches - which is NOT CHECKED when brought into a Renault dealer. Ultimately, it's there responsibility. An example if a tyre is wearing or the wiper blades - you get a note of this after a servicing - why not things like a bonnet safety catch?
