This was taken in the context of a rear pad change on a Scenic II.

Selwonk - thanks for your input ....sensible and honest as always.

Charles - cambelt tutorial ? ......... wait till I pick myself off the floor ..... heh heh.

It seems there's been a wee bit confusion / misunderstanding over what was written. There is no need to remove the handbrake cable, this is not the part of the mechanism that needs reset as such. The part that is "reset" is an internal ratchet, part of the handbrake that moves the piston out anti-clockwise as the pads naturally wear down, when the handbrake is applied. If this is not wound back in, the piston will not fully return into the caliper.
I'm not sure of the consequence of not winding the piston back on this particular car, but I do know of a few that would result in a knackered caliper. It's an expensive mistake to make eh

In the Haynes manual for this vehicle it states "if fitting new pads it will be necessary to retract the piston fully into the caliper bore by rotating it in a clockwise direction"
Hope this helps, regards Damian.

Great post. I'm going to my discs and pads on my laguna II shortly. These have a bearing built into the disc hub. I have a caliper windback tool so I'll try and do as good a post as you have. This is what forums should be about.

BTW DemonXP is completely wrong about winding back the calipers. Later Renault REAR calipers must be wound back using the tool that you used. Fords also have a similar set up. It is imperative that you do this. Forcing it back will damage the caliper. Front calipers just push straight back. I bought a laser wind back too and it covers all of the modern and popular makes.
