Faulty Clio Bonnet catch

Yesterday (29th June 06) exactly the same thing happened to us. I feel very very lucky we escaped unhurt although with a lot of damage to the car including smashed windscreen, badly damaged bonnet and roof.

The car had been serviced by a Renault dealer less than 2 months before. We had the damaged car taken to the Renault dealer yesterday, they denied all knowledge of any faults with the bonnet clips.

The garage are going to enquire with their customer services and get back to us.

In reading this thread it seems apparent this is a more common problem than Renault are admitting and as such I believe Renault shoudl be help responsible for what is clearly a manufacturing fault.

I would be very appreciative of any advice on where we stand legally regarding payment to damages.

Please email me at

Thanks in advance
