Re: change rear pads with electronic hand brake

a tip for the next time you have to do it crack open the bleed screw connect a bit of pipe to a jar with some fluid in then push /screw back the pistons this stops pressure going all the way back to the master cylinder and some cars inc renault can get seals damaged due to back pressure it also removes the fluid in the calliper that is under most pressure from heat worth bleeding after just to get some fresh fluid in the system
