I took the old ones out and cleaned everything up, it all seems to work fine with nothing corroded in place so no sticking pistons etc. Perhaps I am just not strong enough to use the draper cube thingy to push and rotate them back in.
see post #9

the draper cube thing sounds like just the foot part that turns piston ? the tool is normally 2 or 3 parts consisting of the foot (cube thingy!) a plate that pushes against caliper and a threaded bar to turn foot

Renault Scenic 2 - Rear Brake Pad Replacement read this for pics of tool

and just to add confusion to this some say right hand thread and some say left hand thread in diferent threads - i think google may be your friend here
Currently in Nexxusone's garage:
