Drove over 300 miles to get it home, no problem whatsoever, fabulous. Since getting it home however, this is whats gone wrong.
1. Back window motor has gone kaput.
2. Both rear wheels get hot, even on short journeys, so new discs and calipers on the way.
3. Blowers have completely stopped working.
4. Hand break (since yesterday) makes an awful noise when it goes on.
5. Also since yesterday, keyless entry only works on the drivers door, and drivers door is also the only door which I can use the button to lock the car with as well.

I'm pretty disappointed to be honest. If anyone can point me int he right direction to fix all of these things, I'd be most grateful as feeling rather dejected about the car at the moment.

I've owned the car for 8 days and it seems to be falling apart

You have been done son!
1. Will need a new Regulator and wiring loom. Renault would pay 75% if car was under 7 yrs old. You must be just over???
2. Seems like something is sticking on somewhere, possibly discs and pads? Maybe cables?
3. Heater rheostat and loom, very common unfortunately.
4.Will need new handbrake motor/unit....ouch. Big expense.
5.Will probably need new door handle wiring.

In summary, "son, you have been done".
