Clio DCI not turning over

Hi folks,

Got a problem with a 2001 Clio 1.5 DCI.

When I try and turn the engine over (after the glow plug light goes out on the dash), I get nothing not even a chug, just a click from the dashboard. But I try and turn the engine over without waiting for the glow plugs after the 3rd of 4th attempt I can get it going. Once the engine is warm I can switch it off and switch it back on again after waiting for the glow plugs. Once it's cold again I get the same problem.

Renault suggested checking for corrosion on the battery terminals, which I had and cleaned up but still not luck. Someone mentioned replacing the relay on it???

Any help would be great as it's stuck on my drive way gathering leaves.
