Angry Naming the parts

I have recently bought a 2000 model clio alize 1.6 automatic AC.The car is giving me loads of problems.
I have posted a pic of inside of bonnet.Can some body kindly identify the parts for me.Will prove very useful to me to understand what others/mechanics/dealers are saying.
Please do explain what each component is meant to do as well.
Many Thanks

Hi Prav - looks like you are a beginner when it comes to car mechanics and we all need to start somewhere. It's not just about knowing where components are but also the need for a basic understanding of their funtions. I suggest you start by having a look through the site below

Always worth buying the Haynes manual for your particular car, even if you cannot fix the car yourself it helps to read up on whats wrong with it when it goes to be fixed, as a female have found it very helpful as you dont look like too much of a pratt when they explain things to you

B/Power Steering Fluid Reservoir
C/Fuel Cut-Off Switch(activates in the event of an impact)
E/Engine ECU
F/Thermostat housing
G/Spark Plug Lead(x4, coil pack at one end,spark plugs at the other)
H/ Oil Filler cap
I/Alternator(run off the Auxillary Belt,together with Aircon Compressor,Power Steering Pump,etc)
J/Aircon Pipes(One low pressure,one high)
K/Top Engine Mount
L/Air Intake Pipe(which leads to the air filter)
M/Heat Sheild(over the exhaust manifold)
N/Bonnet Catch(main)
O/This is where the bonnet safety catch clips to,please read comments on this elsewhere in the forum!)
