Re: Renault Clio 2 - Bonnet Catch Failures

Hi My wife has a Clio Grande 1.2. After doing some routine maintenance i couldn't get the bonnet to lock. I sprayed with plenty of WD40 then greased the catch, only then it would lock and unlock as it should. I presume the lock had dried out and wouldn't return to the correct position. I expect your bonnet vibrating in the turbulent air released it's self.

Sorry to hear of your problem, but i thought I'd add my experience just in case anyone else had a dry lock.
