As is suggested above I would get in touch with Watchdog, VOSA and your local Trading Standards (if you get passed to Consumer Direct say that this is a safety issue and you want it passed onto a Trading Standards Officer for investigation - insist on this).

Other than that read others experiences on this.

To all other regular posters do you think we should set up a what to do next link for who's bonnet clip fails. This way we won't be repeating ourselves every week?

Yes, good idea Meesh with a link to this thread incorporated in it, As there is a lot of reading in this thread quite a bit to trawl through for a first time poster.
