Re: Clio Bonnet Nightmare!

Yeah this is a very well known fault, the older models like mine and yours originally were fitted with a bonnet catch which would stick when not kept oiled up, thus when you go to close the bonnet it doesn't spring back and lock. Sadly now it is to late for you but, if you had taken it to Renault they would of replaced it with a new design catch without charge and also you can take it back any time for inspection without charge.

Hope this sort of help
