Saved my day, thanks!

It took me about 3 hours to get the first side done (visiting Renault Forums after the first hour of frustration) and a half-hour to do the other.

Just a couple of things to add (sorry if it's been said and I've missed it):

The handbrake cable unhooks fairly easily, which then allows the caliper to be swung round for better accessibility. I laid my two wheels flat on top of each other and supported it on them.

I wasted a lot of time turning the cylinder, expecting it to screw itself in, but it doesn't.
Then, as suggested above, I used a 150mm wood clamp to put the pressure on; it needed quite a bit. Then I screwed the cylinder in with a super-wrench; adjustable crescent pliers would probably do too.
