Mk1 Phase 2 Laguna - Locating bonnet hinges...

Wondering if anyone here has a spare pair of bonnet hinges I can buy for a reasonable fee? Or at least a Passenger side?

In theory I've a driver-side hinge coming my way from a seller on eBay , but a known-good matching pair would be useful to have - I can always sell the spare back on if needed.

I've tried to locate originals or even new clone-parts via Renault and a number of online dealers, only to be told Renault discontinued them (and have none left) and where online stocks show as available, companies used do far have been shady at best and parts have mysteriously become unavailable as soon as an order placed, with nobody able to provide parts from anywhere.

Reason behind all this? My 1998 Lag threw its bonnet in my face on a motorway, and despite locating all the other parts to fix it up (master cylinder was letting go, as had one of the front calipers, warping the discs, etc etc...), we can't seem to get hinges; the originals having been bent out of shape so badly they needed cutting to get the bonnet back open after I'd shut it down to continue the rest of the journey!

I'm hoping windscreens will be somewhat easier to come by. Mine is only cracked, so should be driveable for a while longer while we sort the rest out.
