Renault Scenic 2 - Rear Brake Pad Replacement

Ok folks, here follows a tutorial on replacing the rear brake pads on a Scenic II fitted with the automatic handbrake.

To ensure the handbrake is off when the car is switched off, pull the handbrake lever and push the centre button as you switch the car off. Then remove the keycard from the dash. The “handbrake disengaged” alarm will sound, but will stop after a few moments.

As we'll be pushing the pistons back into the calipers there is a chance you might spill some brake fluid from the reservoir unless you remove the cap to allow the fluid back.
Pics 1, 2 & 3 show the engine cover in place and removed & how to gain access to the reservoir.




Jack up the rear of the car and remove the wheel centre cap to gain access to the wheel nuts. Remove the wheel and you're confronted with the brake disc & caliper assembly ( Pics 4 & 5 )



Loosen then remove the top and bottom caliper bolts then remove the caliper ( pic 6 )


You'll then be left with the carrier part of the caliper and the pads ( pic 7 )


Remove the pads and small metal clips ( pics 8, 9 & 10 show the bits removed and a comparison between old and new pads)




Fit the new pads and clips - remembering to copaslip any areas where the pads come in contact with the clips. I tried to turn the piston ( clockwise ) back into the caliper but in the end had to borrow a special tool from a local garage to do the job ( pics 11, 12, 13 & 14 )



Then refit the outer part of the caliper & remember to tighten both bolts ( pics 15, 16 & 17 )


Before you replace the wheel remember to pump the brake pedal until you feel the pedal as it was before you started - unless you have a morbid desire to crash your car !
Only after you’ve done this can you operate the handbrake.


Lower the car to the floor then do the same on the opposite side If you're only doing the rear brakes, check the level in the reservoir and top up with Dot 4 fluid if needed, then replace the cap and the engine cover.

Another great post Gonescenile.

I would give you more Rep points if I could...


So no need to pop the lever in the boot ( handbrake release ) .

They do look very worn as opposed to your fronts, I presume they must have been binding for some time ? but the discs do not show signs of binding ? rusty yes .

Another great post !! Thanks for the info on the mileage you got from the pads, my Scenic just turned 20000 miles. How much were the front and rear pads out of interest ? Regards Damian.

Thanks again Gents

John, no need to pop the lever in the boot I too was quite surprised the discs showed no serious damage due to the brakes binding & I had to use a small hammer and a screwdriver to get the pads out of the calipers due to all the cr@p that had built up around them. Funny thing is though, every time I washed the car I gave the rear brakes a bloomin' good blast with the jet wash. I thought that should've got rid of all the cr@p. Obviously not eh ! I reckon as there was no copaslip used when the car was built, this was the root cause of the pads seizing.

Thanks Leroy.

Damian, I'll check the receipt tomorrow and let you know. I did get a discount though, as I know the storeman
