I'm not certain that a Can Clip is required for these though obviously one would do it. Other diagnostics may well work if they can talk to brake system.
Check around local brake people for advise though Renault dealers are sometimes quite competitive on standard service jobs.

Cheers for the tip matey, after 20 years of Mitsubishi Shoguns I'm not used to all this technology. Lol
I've had a look and sure enough, great big electric motors on each caliper, looks like I'll be busy on the phone and not the spanners.
Thanks for your help though.
