Resetting brake piston

Hi all,

I will be attempting to change the brakes on my megane this week, does anyone have any advice regarding resetting the brake piston without buying the tool kit? does anyone have any ideas on how to reset it? Someone has suggested unscrewing the brake resevoir lid and using a c clamp on the piston?

Also, I know there are no specific ways to tell if a timing belt has been replaced or not and alot of people will suggest replacing it, but is there anyway to tell that a timing belt has recently been replaced? My car has done 109k miles but has no history of it ever being changed, I recently looked at it and the writing on the belt is clear as day, glowing white and says 'made in italy' am I naive in thinking that renault would have fit a belt made in France? haha!

Thank you to anyone who replies
