Check with the Renault dealer (or scrapyard) whether you can buy a pair of hinges. The remains of the hinges in the car can be unbolted after the head lining is carefully pulled down. They will be the wrong colour so an alternative would be to buy a pair of hinge pins and then remove the hinges fit them in a vice and drive/drill the remains of the old pins out and refit the hinges with the new pins. It is going to be a bit of a pest.
