Grand scenic 2005 1.5 dci. How to replace rear caliper?
Anything to watch out for with electric hand brake.
Any advice appreciated.

Regards

Re: Renault Scenic 2 - Rear Brake Pad Replacement

Did mine today. Fairly a straight forward job if you have the proper tools. Do not believe Haynnes manual when it says the piston can be wound back by a pair of pliers. The left one was a dog to wind back even with the special tool, the right one was a nasty dog.

I have put my new caliper on, the piston has not adjusted itself yet. Is that done by pulling the handbrake?
I will read some more.
Other side to put on tomorrow.

If replacing caliper but not pads
Wind caliper out until pads are snug
If wound out too far, wind back at least one turn then wind out again.

If new pads (may as well while doing caliper) wind all way back should be a snug fit for pads on disc.

In either case, bolt everything up once happy.
Make sure hand brake cables are in.
Lever arm should be back on rest, cables may be a little loose. That's okay.

Pump brake pedal a few times to push piston out
Then and only then, operate handbrake to let the self adjust operate.

I pumped the footbrake, and bled the brakes, loads of play, after that I applied the handbrake to adjust the brakes.
Seemed to work ok. Other side to do tomorrow, should be much quicker this time.
