Does the Draper Caliper Wind-Back Tool do the business ?

With the rain trickling down my neck at the weekend I hit the seemingly common problem of not being able to persuade the caliper back into the piston on the rear brakes of my 2002 Laguna.
Wish I'd checked out this forum first - would have saved ma a lot of time & aggro.

Does anyone know if the Draper Caliper Wind Back tool (item 52334, a black cube-shaped tool with 5 'dot' patterns) fit the Laguna ?

Thanks for any assistance/confirmation
(& thanks for all the other helpful hints !)

Yep,they should come complete like this.....

We used aftermarket ones and they came with the bearings and ABS sensors already fitted,and a new hub nut and cover was also supplied.

Around £60+vat each,but worth it.

I'll post some more info on them later.

I have the expensive draper wind back tool but find that it makes pad changes quick and easy as it will wind just about any caliper in nice and square.

Thanks to all on this thread for some great advice.

Just wanted to add my experience of changing the pads.

The pillar bolts on the callipers are 7mm hex. The headroom on the lower one is a little restricted (60mm or so). The standard 7mm 90 degrees keys sold in many shops are generally too long to fit. A standard 7mm Allen will do the job nicely.

I unlatched the handbrake cable and also removed it from the casting. This frees up the calliper and makes the job of winding back the piston a lot easier.

I wound back the piston using a mole wrench and a single handed grip. The grip just applies enough force and the clockwise wind does the rest. Cap off the brake reservoir first. Job done in five minutes.

Total time for both sides - 2 hours (including time to get pads and copper grease from Halfords).

All in all saved £50 on local garage prices. Don't know what Renault charge.

I'm not a confident mechanic but would recommend anybody who thought about doing this job themselves to have a go.
