Have a look at the long discussion here :
Faulty Renault Clio bonnet catches
It probably won't help you much, but report it to renault and VOSA, to at least add to the statistics. Hopefully the more cases that are reported will make a recall more likely.
You could contact Brigatti on the above thread, as he is actively pursuing it. Unfortunately the tactics of denying the problem by renault seem to have been successful in getting other people to give up.
I think that renault will have to be taken to court to receive any compensation. Before you get the car repaired, consider paying for an independent engineer's report, as this could help with a complaint to renault or legal action if you decide to later. Also contact your insurance company to see if they can assist.
