Hi madnoel10,
Yes, I suspected that removing the sunroof frame and refitting it with plenty of good quality silicone would do it. I did that on my Espace a few years ago and it has been fine ever since. Actually I used a hard setting black gutter repair mastic! But it was a fiddly job. That frame was rivetted in and I had to drill the rivets out and then adapt the frame to screw it back in. Maybe the Clio is easier but I didn't have the time to look into it.

I got the infra-red receiver via a mate who works for Renault as it saves me a trip into town, but I'm sure it's just a standard part you could order at any Renault garage. The interesting thing is that it fixed the problem and didn't require any reprogramming. I just clipped in the new receiver and now the central locking works perfectly.
