Well, having pushed to get the report which Renault completed on my vehicle - Renault refused to release it to me directly or via VOSA - so I decided to try to obtain as much information as I could via a FoI request to VOSA.

After about 5 weeks of tooing and froing, I managed to obtain two additional documents:

The actual Renault Engineer's report which VOSA released to me, and a subsequent copy of the City Motors inspection which VOSA completed - spot-check on 3 other Clio vehicles (none of which experienced the bonnet issue). They are attached in the zip file, downloadable from this site:

Pleasant reading!!  I've summarised my thoughts in the return letter to VOSA, but a few things don't tally...the date of the report for one thing, as the FoI request indicates a report in June (which is enclosed in the above zip file), but the report completed by Renault was compiled on 13th April, and published to VOSA on 22nd May 2007.  So are we talking about the same report here?

Secondly, the only reason I can see Renault wanting to bury this report, is the comment about corrosion - meaning a part could fail to function due to this!  Maybe they didn't coat the part with enough anti-corrosion stuff?  Cutting corners.  If so, it has come back to haunt them!

Anyway, also take the opportunity to share the link to the updated correspondence trail - below:
