Hi there

We had a similar problem a few months back where we got in, turned the key,a click & then nothing. After a quick once over it still would not go. Another look at the positive contacts on the battery we saw the knob that screws onto the terminals had come unscrewed just a small amount & that was enougth to stop the car from starting. we coated the terminals & screw threads with petroleulm jelly & re screwed them down. After speaking to a friend at a garage it is quite common on clio's with this kind of screw fixings for the pos terminal.
