Re: Renault Clio 2 - Bonnet Catch Failures

When I got my 05 there was a sticker under the bonnet
to the effect it had been done and it as a metal secondary
catch, it also seems to have a very strong spring pulling the
catch back, I check all is oily and moving as it should every time
I lift the bonnet, and that its shut properly after, and still
I don't really trust it.
You would think Renault would come up with a 100%
sure fire fix, as it must put many off Renault's not just

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.
