Split Wing (Clio 2)

The front wing on my 2003 clio has split along the fold in the plastic along the bonnet shut line. the crack is roughly 5 inches long and follows the bend but proturdes into the wing for an inch. so is clearly visable.
There are no visable signs of impact or marks in the piant on the wing so it points to a materail failure, even if it was due to putting the bonnet down I would not expect it to fail under that sort of use. it has after all only covered 26000 miles.
Has anyone else suffered this problem on thier clio or any other renault with plastic wings

your input would be appricated.
