Split plastic wing

I found a 3inch crack on the front wing of our Scenic today on the top parallel to the edge of the bonnet.

It doesnt look as if its been hit in anyway, as there is no paint damage, so why has it done this and how much is it too fix?

Surely if some onces pressed up against it , or even leant against it it would give and return to shap, that being the point of plastic wings.

This doesnt seem to be on any other threads and my wife is going to go ape when she finds out.

You can press it togther and it all but disappears, so if the other size was accessible there may be some of bonding it from behind.

Do these plastic wings have cracking problems?

Can I claim to the garage as theres no sign of impact damage that it should be dealt with under warranty?

How much would it be to supply and fit a new wing?

Seriously hacked off now.

Please help I've only owned a Renault for two months and it does feel well designed but cheaply executed.
