Re: Can't get megane new rear pads in

Try this, if you look at the piston, you will see a dust shield/ rubber boot that fits into the piston, about a quarter inch down, lift this up, and spray a small amount of penetrating oil inside.
Now get in the car and press the brake pedal softly , 2 short pumps, .
Just to bring it out ...... Dont go crackers, soft/gentle/steady.
Now go to screw it back in, see if that works

I think, aesthetically, car design is so interesting - the dashboards, the steering wheels, and the beauty of the mechanics. I don't know how any of it works, I don't want to know,
