laguna catch how to stop it breaking

ok here we go this is for the laguna 2 not that 1 was any better ..i got my cable from renult for 50 pence ..and yes i think the guy made a mistake ..but any way ,,when i got a local garage to fix it lasted a bout a 7 month and then ..the pin snaped ,,there is a small plastic pin that holds it on to the metal mount where you pull it this is what you should do as this pin is ...the problem ..if
like mine it snaps fine get a metal bolt and use that just drill through the plastc plate and put new bolt in and it will be far stronger ..and yes as said above keep well greased and if you can get some 1 to push down on the bonnet when you open it as it makes it easer to open ..,, hard can it be to make a catch that works come on renult get a grip
