pads - using your own tool


Thanks for suggesting an alternative rear caliper "turner"
Did you mean one of these G clamp + foots:

And, many many thanks for all the other excellent contributors - especially as I'm on my haunches all day tomorrow, doing all four wheels. After many 100s of pad changes - i find myself nervous in front of Renault modern complexity :-)

A few ancilliary questions, if I could -

1) The pipes to the caliper appear solid type - so bending back or allow to hang is not an option ! Do you disconnect at the caliper of further down the way?
2) Renault supplied pads now come with a strange shaped clip .. (square section, a large and a small grip area, parallel to one another) any advice on orientation?
3) In the last 8 months there was a recall on Scenics for brakes ... what was the exact detail of what Renault changed?

many thanks
