The bonnet catch issue is from the grease that renault use not liking road salt and jet washing. When you drop the bonnet it pushes the catch back where it sticks and only has a half hold on the catch.
You may also have an issue with the air temp sensor as this causes the temp needle to drop on the 182 and not register leading to starting problems and other issues.
Thanks for your reply. As for the gauge dropping im gonna wait and see what happens once ive attempted to bleed the system I think. If it still persists then I will try a few more things I guess lol
