I have also been maintaining the catch any time I check the oil etc etc. Probably overdoing it to be honest.
However, I remember a thread about a 147 bonnet opening on the motorway and I remember the person posting the pics - didn't look good! A few days later i went to scotland to visit a family member with a clio and their bonnet had opened on the motorway and smashed everything on the front, bar the bumper, to pieces!
It looks like a scary thing to happen. I will now check mine again tomorrow - despite having lubed it up only 2 weeks ago!
