This is exactly the same design that is on mine... the plastic lever got stuck in the open position due to the plastic (circular thing holding it) and the spring didn't seem strong enough to pull it back.

If you are unlucky enough to have the main mechanism fail and the safety catch not return when you close the bonnet then you have problems at higher speeds.

I would take it to Renault with your concerns... wish I had known... Let me know how you get on.
