Re: A couple of q's on front discs and pads.Meg 3

Based on experiance of other renaults/cars. With different diameter discs they use different calipers. They may look the same but the will be spaced off from the center of the hub differently. It's normal to have a gap at the top between the disc and the caliper. The important thing is where the pads touch the disc which is where the spacing comes in to play.
Hopefully that's help and not just confussed you more.
