Re: Clio bonnet
Hi Marco, and welcome.
As Noel states, check to see if it's involved in the recall, if so - a checkover will be free.
Moving forwards, a heavy grease is what I would use - either copper grease or Lithium-Molybendum based would be fine - apply liberally using a small paintbrush on the catch and the cable release.
WD-40 will just dry-out the connections, so I wouldn't use that type of product for this task.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
