Re: Help... Faulty bonnet catch

As lancsdave, could be that the plastic 'pull' under the bonnet isn't retracting as it should - clean it of grease/muck and re-lube with white grease, see if that sorts it.

That, or there's a problem with the striker assembly in the slam panel, or the cable for the cabin release lever.

Lots of cars have been recalled for this as it's a known dangerous fault, it's worth contacting Renault to see if yours has been recalled; if not they may replace the mechanism free of charge.
