Re: Dreaded Clio bonnet catch failure on my 172

I have 1 here same thing happened insurance wrote it off car is good otherwise !!

Hinges take the brunt of it have repaired 1 before bonnet sits high because it and the hinges are bent the part the hinges attaches to is sturdy this is unlikely to be bent

bonnets can be had for 50 or so

Be aware though the screen is expensive

Just read your screen is ok you were very lucky mines is in a million pieces
Currently in mr espace's garage:
espace escort cabriolet subaru legacy clios etc !!
