Easy way out?

Hi,

Smashing and informative post and interesting follow up. However, I had doubts about replacing them myself. I got them done just yesterday, in a Glasgow Kwick fit for 64.10 and it took the fitter just over an hour. Also KF has a lifetime replacement on the pads for as long as you own the car.

I usually do as much work as I can on my cars and was aware there might have been a bit of hard sell on other parts like tyres etc., or an exageration of the work required to do the pads, but there was none of that.

Incidently, Renault minute wanted 114 for the job and Buget Tyres wouldn't touch it saying they had a technical bulletin from HQ to that effect.

Hope this helps someone to make up their mind re DIY or otherwise.

Albaca.

PS Renaut minute has a voucher for a free puncture repair amongst other things.

Unhappy Getting the slack back, scenic hand brake.

I just changed all the pads on my 05 grand scenic, borrowing a tool from my mate to wind in the rears. Trying to be clever I unhooked the hand brake cable before I started?! No problem off side but in doing the last pads nsr, I inadvertantly put the handbrake on, cable retracted now can't get the cable to re-connect even though I shouted at it! How do I get the slack back?

great post mate. keep em coming.

one thing though. all the time i psent working at renault. me and the fellow technicians found that when you replace the metal slides onto the brake yokes, it is best to remove the two old ones and just fit one new slide to the bottom of the yoke. this helps prevent binding and annoying noises in future. this in no way affects the braking performance etc

this is totally upto the owner to decide if they want to do this but i recommend it
