This is a short detailed step by step guide to replace the pads without any sophisticated equipment or renault clips or cam bus modules.

- park car on a level surface and chock the wheels properly so as it does not move forward or backward.

- shut down the engine

- engage 1st or reverse gear

-release the park brake

- jack the car and remove the wheel.

- at the lower back side of the caliper there is an electrical connector, slide the red cover back gently with a wide screw driver push in the little tongue and remove connector gently( be careful because it tends to be a bit jammed. do not yank it off because it will brake the motor housing) - notice that there is a red & a red / blue wire in the connector take note which goes where( you will need to remember for the next stage)

- connect two suitable connectors( Spades) with a long enough wire to be able to connect to a 12 v battery. - when you inverse connect them the brake will apply and after a second or so the motor will stop working.

- connect the polarities in the proper order and the motor will start whizzing continuously for about 10 to 20 seconds. when it starts making a different noise STOP.

-Now back at the caliper lever it open as much as it will go, and replace the pads as you will normally do.

-repeat for the other side.
Can you finish off this HOW TO ,
Brake pads are now fitted , then what?
