Hi the "clip" version is only applicable to some gearbox types, the biggest majority fitted to the Clio2 are the pull out type.
Make sure the ribbed seal on the electrical plug is intact, as thats where the problems usually lie, and it lets water corrode the contacts, if you can find one some later models also have a shield to help stop the water/heat damaging the sensor, its also available from Renault as a mod kit.
hope it helps
