That's a very good post there by Louis and I would agree if there is a FAQ section it could be put into it certainly deserves it. This is a very common problem with this Engine only on Clio's and causes lots of running and none starting problem when the wiring shorts.
When I replaced my engine my old wiring loom had started to rub through and exposed wire could be seen. I never went quite as far as you and simply left the cover off and I have never had any problems although your method is probably better as it will be there for a reason.
