Whats happening?
Don't worry about it. The beeping is normal. It shuts up eventually. I trust you've put the car in service mode.
Card in, Neutral, don't touch the pedals, Start for 10 secs, till steering releases. Handbrake off. Press Start twice.
3rd Scenic, NEVER had a caliper tool. Just a G clamp & Footprints.
DO NOT PUT THE CARD IN while the Calipers are off. Don't want the EPB operating whilst it's apart.
