Bubbles in the fuel line means that you have an air leak somewhere in the system.. The fuel system on the 1.5 DCI is self bleeding so bubbles is not good..

i had bubbles in mine after a Renault dealer replaced a glow plug... needless to say the engine kept cutting out and i lost power at 30mph at a roundabout on the way to the dealer to fix this problem!!

Has the 1.5 got the hand priming pump like the 1.9? Giving that a few squeezes, and then running the engine, and then repeating normally gets rid of most air

Drain water from the fuel filter. There is a bleed screw at the bottom of it.
