Thanks in advance.
Hi, my Clio has a sticking bonnet catch, too. I wedge a shoe under the bonnet release handle and bounce the bonnet a couple of times to open it. I have tried grease and WD40, neither of which work. I am going to remove the assemby underneath the bonnet and give it a thorough clean, unless it's badly worn, in which case I am going to replace it.
