Re: Clio - Bonnet keeps opening

I would ring your local Renault dealer, and see what they say, mine as been back 2 or 3 times for checks the last one was about 12 month ago, give both the catches a clean and oil get them both that's the main catch and the safety one moving freely, I would not drive it with the bonnet coming open if it comes right open as some have it is likely to smash the screen and even dent the A pilers as well as other damage.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.
