Wow - this is an interesting post...
1) You've indicated that the mechanism was well-maintained (rules out the blame-game that Renault are using on all "incidents" caused by this safety-issue)...
2) The mechanism was quoted as "seized" by the Renault engineer/mechanics.
3) Vehicle quoted as "unsafe to drive".
Now if this doesn't link to a safety defect I don't know what does?
I don't think it's anything to do with you or any other driver - but just the way the catch mechanism is designed and the effects of using "inferiour" parts (i.e. parts that cannot cope with 'daily usage').
