Re: Renault Clio MK II bonnet

Hello hartson, youll need 2 people ... first spray everything you can get too under the bonnet with WD40 or similar ... use the red straw to be directional ... after letting it soak, then get someone to sit in the car and hold the lever open while you cajole the bonnet from outside ... this may take a few goes, this usually works.

Once open then lub and grease all moving parts on the lock and the bonnet saftey catch .... check if your car has been recalled by Renault to have the latch checked ... phone your local dealer with the Reg number or chassis number.

Hope it helps

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
