thanks for your advice

Stef, get your bonnet latch fixed quickly ... its dangerous, as the bonnet can fly up without warning ... check the forums for the details.

Its an easy fix ... spray with copious quantities of WD40 or similar on the lock mech, and between the inner and outer cables ... once its all nice and working properly (not sticking like you have experienced,) then spray or apply to the mech some lithium grease or other similar non staining and waterproof grease and work it in by operating the lock.

I believe that this all the "Renault check" is doing ... I havent heard of them replacing any latches unless siezed.

Hope it helps

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
Currently in Truckbusuk's garage:
Clio2 1.4RT Phase1(VF1BB0S) + Volvo XC90 SE Lux D5 Geartronic
