I don't personally know the Mk.2 Clio 1.4 engine, however, there's a few items in the Clio FAQ which will probably be useful in tracking down the TDC sensor on your car, and which explain other possible causes of the problem (though it almost always seems to be the TDC sensor with problems purely with starting on petrol Renaults.)

The closest thing to an explanation of where it actually is was this thread on a French forum. A picture is worth a thousand words, as they say.
