I have an idea in mind, but without seeing the damage, don't know if it's an approporiate solution.

Here are some pics of the bonnet/hinges/roof.

Closer examination of the hinge gives me the impression the retaining bolts are accessed from inside the engine compartment. Looks like awkward access, but when was it ever not with a Renault.


Currently in tootler's garage:
Clio 172
