Re: Renault Clio 2 - Bonnet Catch Failures
Hi just passing on some information about my daughters incident. A few days ago she was driving through doncaster over a bridge at 40mph when her bonnet opened shattering the windscreen and putting a few small dints in the roof of the car, luckily it wasnt busy and she managed to stop without crashing but was traumatised by the incident. As luck happened the police was passing a few moments later and managed to get the bonnet back down and she managed to get the car home safely as it was a short journey which the police told her to do so, she then put what had happened on facebook (as you do lol) and was told about other happenings on renault car bonnets which we looked up on internet.
at this point (due to daughters insurance being third party fire and theft) i decided to contact renault only to be told they have checked hundreds of bonnet catches and never found any faults and they sent letters out recorded delivery which on their files the post office tried to deliver but no one was in ?? (no card left to pick it up from post office )!! I asked if i could get any help towards the repair of the damaged windscreen and bonnet but was refused as it would look like they were admitting that there was a fault !!!
