Re: Clio Mk4 Front Pads difficulties?

It was more the getting the caliper back on after installing the new pads, which normally involves manhandling the pistons back into their housings whilst keeping a keen eye on the ever-rising brake fluid reservoir.

Guess I'll just have to give it a crack and see how it goes.

Pads & discs quote from Renault was 220+ (LOL); got the pads on same-day delivery from Euro for 13 and I'm hanging fire on the discs for a week or 2 but these can be had for about 32 from eBay .

I'd bet Renault could do the job in 30 minutes (it'll take me at least twice that as I don't have a ramp and all the best tools), so they are essentially charging 175 for labour.
