I appreciate the Renault type battery connections can be a pain - surprisingly I still have the originals in use on my 1994 Clio and they have never gave any problems. As with any type of battery connection they need to be protected from the atmosphere - Once cleaned and fitted correctly I just give them a shot of spray grease along with the bonnet catch once a year just before winter sets in. Over the years I have came across too many cars with corroded and loose battery terminals usually on a cold frosty morning
