Scenic Rear Brakes

Tried replacing the rear pads on 02 1.9 scenic. Eventually sussed that you turn the piston but could not turn it enough to get the new pads in. Was using a socket to turn the nut but is it just a case of force when it starts to get tight and nearer the caliper casing. The discs pads are working even wear shiny etc so not appearing to have seized and took the reservoir top off and released the handbrake cable off any suggestions. The pads are from partco/unipart

We've had this posted a few times recently,and it sounds as though there are different thickness of rear pads available...

If the piston is going back into the caliper fully,then the pads you have are too thick.It's only a guess though....I'll make a few calls at work tomorrow and find out.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
