I have the same problems. brilliant car but will not start sometimes. Most of the while it is fine, but then after I have been out stopping and starting all day I will get back in it and it turns over but just will not start. We have been told it is the Top Dead Centre Sensor and we should clean it but please tell us where it actually is on the engine, as we have no idea. Then perhaps the problem will be solved. Please help........

sometimes better to buy the whole new shaft assembled gearbox to diff ... and just that bolt on
one method mark both sides of the half shafts so it you can see it will line up again and not be out of balance one part in a vice soft hammer the two halves till the spline separates replace center bearing
have you checked ,,or had ,,your timing checked or had work done on your cam shaft timming belt or tensionsers are you due a cam belt change?? check the engines timming before you go on,, then go one item at a time after that
It could be many things causing this problem but we're going to start with the most common on Renault's testing the LED light on your instrument panel, when you install your key to start if it's flashing rapidly then the problem is with the immobilizer.
Suggestion number two the engine TDC sensor or in other terms the engine speed sensor also known as flywheel sensor which can be found under the airbox filter, mounted to the gearbox in between gearbox and engine, when the problem occurs place your hand and try to move the connector that is connected to the TDC and then try to start the engine normally it's a connector problem and not the actual sensor. If this does not solve your problem I have further suggestions.
the vehicle is old enough that the fan blower motor sounds like it is in need of replacing. when you hit the dash it causes the brushes in the motor to contact enough to start the electrical connection, it may stop when it gets hot, or is turned off. the ticking sound is more than likely the bearings wore in the motor enough to cause the cage fan to touch the housing enough to cause the sound.
It sounds like you may have a blocked drain in the evaporator box. This is where the heater core and evaporator are located.
If you look under the vehicle about where the heater is located, you should see a small tube sticking down ( plastic or rubber ) this should be he drain.
You can squeese the tube open and see if it will drain, If not it may be clogged up with dirt and debris that may require the box to be removed and cleaned.
Check the air inlet, usually located in front of the windsheild, just under the wipers for debris. Keep this area clear. If it has a lot of leaves or other things around it, it can cause water to build up and flood the evaporator box, as well as get down inside.
You may need to take this to a shop that can put it on a lift and get at the drain from the underside, they may be able to clear it without too much troble
