Hi Chris,i dont know how similar the clio 1 and 2 engines are but i had the same problem with my 1.2 grande.My mechanical mate went straight to the starter motor connections,the starter motor on the clio 2 is at the front underside [near enough] of the engine so get loads of crap thrown at it.He cleaned up the connections and coated with WD40,it solved the problem for me.

Hope this helps.
