Rain leaking in

What a fantastic forum this is, been reading through different topics and everyone is so helpful.

Theres a few things wrong with my car at the minute.

Problem 1 - Footwell leaking

The driverside footwell is soaked with water, I'm having real problem trying to find the leak, ive narrowed it down to under the drivers seat. I went and ripped the carpet out so its down to the bare metal and soaked it all up with a sponge. I put the carpet back and left it overnight and its come back as it was raining last night.

Where can water get in from the outside to the driverside, i know its not the sunroof, so that narrows it down?

Problem 2 - Central Locking

Central locking doesn't work from the fob, have to open all the doors from the driverside door and when i do this all the doors open. Im sure its just a case of getting it to be recognised by the car again, any ways to do this to avoid renault dealer costs? Fob lights up and still flashes. If it helps i do not have a central locking button inside the car, however, i do have a button when the windscreen wiper control is.

Problem 3 - Indicators

When I drive along normally and signal to turn RIGHT, the indictor flashes normally at a steady rate, however when it comes to breaking the indicator decides to flash when it wants and it slows down and when i take my foot off the brake it returns to normal.

When I'm also driving along normally the oil light and the temp gauge flashes on and off when it wants to.

Cheers Danny
Having the same problems with the rainwater. It is coming in above drivers side front door.I have checked the sunroof (Clio Dynamique 16v 54 plate) and that is clear, I have also had the panels off and found nothing obvious. Been down to dealers and they quoted between 80 and 120 quid for a water check - I don't think so!!
