Just re-read your mail Meesh, so as the liability has shifted during a recall to VOSA - this means all the manufacture needs to indicate (prove) that there is no fault, and then no recall would be called / enforced by VOSA.

So Renault are playing a clever tactic, and obviously, blinded VOSA when Renault wrote their internal report and published this to VOSA - as this indicated that there was no sign of a fault, VOSA were frightened to act. Problem is that the report didn't actually indicate anything specifically - it didn't say that there WAS a fault, but it didn't actually imply that there was WASN'T a fault. It actually couldn't relay what caused a 2-catch bonnet mechanism to release without pretty flimsey assessment at best!
