Lynzward, I've send you a PM - drop me a line if you would like to discuss....there are several on the forum who have previously experienced the same type of incident (bonnet failures) resulting in life-threatening but VERY lucky results!

1) Getting a independent report as Andy indicated is a good start.
2) VOSA is the next good bet.
3) Send a comm to Renault HQ - at least getting a case filed within them (p.s. they blatantly deny ANY issues with their bonnet catches / mechanism)
4) Talk to your local Trading Standards and Insurance to see their position

Good luck!!!!!
