Question about 2000 Renault 181
The rain comes in through the sun roof and eventually leaks into the car through the mobilising unit and sunroof handle above the mirror.
After a downpour the water swishes around in the roof of the car - on going up or down an incline - then leaks into the car over the gear stick and passenger seat as above.
Betta Windsrceens Stockport have been repairing sunroofs for 30 years. What i will tell you is both the mk1 and mk2 clios have a problem with the sunroofs.
The sunroof needs to be taken out cleaned damming seal on frame removed and fitted back with silicone sealer excess sealer clean of with white sprite no need to remove head lineing if fitted with 10 mm bolts use a ratchet spanner. Mk1 clios also leak from the arial remove and reseal. And mk1 & mk2 have a problem with the bulk head filling up with water. Open bonnet on the back of the bulk head is a hose about 6 inches long which gets blocked un block and the water can drain like it did the day the car left the factory. bettabob

I had the same problem with a 51reg clio expression.
Only way to fix it was to remove the sun roof from the car, clean all the old sealant from the rim, apply new windscreen/sunroof type silicone to the sunroof rim and re-fix.
If you remove the inner trim of the sunroof you can access the 10mm bolts which clamp it to the roof.
