I Contacted renault yesterday and evan though this has happened to over 1000 people already, they will not admit any liability for what happened. I know have a big payout to get the car repaired (windscreen, bonnet and possibly the roof- it may evan be a right off) will NEVER drive a renault again.

If anyone has a mark 2 clio, I would urge you to go to your nearest dealer and get the bonnet catch checked out. It was an awful and extremely terrifying experience.

sound advice
