Clio 2001 1.2 16v.

Hello. I'm relatively new to Renault and have bought my brothers old clio.
The car is amazingly sound apart from a few issues.
The passenger side door won't open to start with, I then open it from the inside ok. I shut it again and try to open it from the outside and it'll work fine. Only when it's been left a while it won't open. Any idea's?

Also sometimes, not often but the car will make a turning sound kinda sounds like the alternator turning but. Not quite engaging? But after will always start?

Thanks for the help!

Check the child locks on the doors first - they look like red round screw heads on lock side of door.
Do you mean alternator or starting motor sound?
