Angry Re: Renault Clio 2 - Bonnet Catch Failures

Hi to all
I had our Clio at the Renault center last Wed 31st Aug it had a bad misfire and would not pull your leg out straight. Fault traced to the coil pack,(after various other things tried) we also had worn wires caused by the ecu outer casing rubbing on them so new coil pack and plugs it was, and it was not cheap. It cured the misfire. I have removed the metal casing fixed the wires and hoping that will be it.
The mechanic did tell me I could have a new catch and it fitted. I haven't made my mind up whether to have it done or not. It dos not fix the bonnet, bonnet hinges, windscreen or roof.
I must add I did not gripe to the mechanic just thanked him.
Currently in Minies bus's garage:
2002 1.216v Clio Extreme and a 2001 1.2 8v Clio Sport
