Clio 1.2 1999 bonnett catch problem
My wife was driving the clio at 30-35 mph. Bonnet came up, hit the windscreen and damaged the roof. £2400 bill for repair, not an economical repair, so had to buy a new Clio.
Contacted company, they said I should maintained the car appropriately. They uhmed and arrhed a bit when I told them that the car was purchased new from Renault dealer and only serviced at the main Renault dealer in Manchester throughout.
Also they couldn't explain why there is nothing in the service or owners manual (or supplements) about maintenance on the bonnet catch.
Let me know if you are able to do anything under the AA. I would personally use the small claims court if I knew who to take to court (Renault UK?, the supplying dealer or Renault France?).
