Re: Replacing Renault trafic brakes o5

No need to buy a wind back kit when you can get away with using one of these..

Most europian car I have worked on have calipers that wind back in different directions ..but I have noticed posts on here saying some wind back in the same direction..for those that wind back in opposite directions a simple rule applies..passenger sides winds in the same direction as a wheel rolling the brake piston winds in anticlockwise ..drives side winds in clock wise like a wheel rolling in a forward direction..simple as that..little tip when winding back caliper pistons is to clamp the brake hose and crack that nipple open = less resistance..
