Bonnet catches on clios

hi all
I have just been reading all the threads regarding the safety of clio bonnet catches. What i need to know is my car is a 52 plate clio expression so i didn't think it applied to my car but looked at the catch anyway. Now i thought the catches on the newer cars were all metal but when i looked at mine it seems to partly plastic. Also the coil piece looks quite rusty. Are renault still suppose to look at the catches for free, if not has the rust weakened the catch. I have only had the car a month so not sure if it was looked at before by the previous owner.
Currently in suzybabe's garage:
