Question 2008 Megane Cabriolet 1.6 petrol - suspension spring

The front suspension spring has broken. A part of it fell onto the ground and looks as if it has suffered from metal fatigue.

The car is only 5 years old and has done under 20k miles. Clearly, it is out of warranty but it doesn't seem reasonable for this to occur so soon. Does anybody know whether this is a common problem or whether Renault might make any contribution to the repair?

Hello Sportynan & welcome to the forum

Springs on Renault's have been known to break on here before, but what you're up against is proving the car hasn't been driven over speed bumps etc at excessive speeds.
