A very informative thread.

I was a tad apprehensive attacking this on my car. As a HGV/PSV Technician for over 20 years we tend to go for the BIG hammer first, if that doesn't work then it's gas axe time.

Time to be a little more subtle with my smaller cousins.

Thanks for the info guys.

Scenic rear pad change

Not sure I should say this but I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this thread even our Bulgarian friends input!!

In searching for the tool to retract the caliper cylinders I have found a right and a left handed version, can anyone tell me which I require for my 02 1.9 dTi Scenic?

Thanks in advance.

Scenic II rear brake pad replacement

After having previously cussed and skinned my fingers attempting to rewind the rear pistons I gave up with the ad hoc methods; waited for winter to pass and purchased the Laser 1314 rewind tool from toolsmartshop.com

http://www.toolsmartshop.com/brake-c...1314-242-p.asp

18.90 incl PP. just over 24hrs later it was delivered. Perfect, easy peasy. Hard to rewind the pistons initially but it got easier; just take it slowly - and don't forget to undo the reservoir cap before compressing those pistons. Take a tip don't fuss with heath robinson trial and error methods unless you are really confident in what you are doing. For a few extra pounds buy the tool and make life easy for yourself.

It is possible you may have disturbed the ABS sesnor whilst working at the brakes

Remeber the old engineering rule - "when a fault occurs always double check the last work carried out"
