the insurance claim is going to cost too much and just wondered if there is any history of Renault repaying the costs?
I had never heard of this problem until last week, now everyone keeps telling me its common thing with this age Clio!


The exact same thing happened to me yesterday, was pulling out onto a dual carriageway when there was a pop and the bonnet suddenley flew up smashed the windscreen destroyed the bonnet and dented all the roof in!!

Car has been taken away not sure if its going to be written of yet, going to email Renault now and hope for a reply, failing that im going to write them a very stern letter asking them for a response!!

the thing is the police and RAC both told me had I got to speed and been doing the 60 or 70 as normal that my partner could be writing to Renault stating that the bonnet had caused a death....

It was frightening and I was very lucky not to be in the outside lane at full speed...
