Scenic converted to manual handbrake **Fixed**

Ok, still got the old scenic 2.
Last week the electronic parking brake failed. After all attempts to repair and reset with no joy. Went down to the scrap yard got a manual handbrake lever and the guild pipes etc off another 04 scenic, 20.
Did the conversion, quite a straight forward job really, no need to change calipers, just fabricated a new longer bolt for under the lever so the cables reach.
Now with epb module removed I have the massage saying~ electronic fault. No bleeping.
Has anyone that has done this conversion had this cleared by Renault or other?
Spoke to Renault Manchester and they say pay the 59.99 and we may be able to erase the epb from the Ecu, they have never come across this before.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in
advance.

Hi
Im also looking at the possibility of converting my GRAND scenic (7 seater) to manual but had lots of varying advice on this. Theres a post on here saying a guy converted his using a laguna 2 handbrake has anyone had experience of this - or any idea where I could locate a manual handbrake (for less than the 180 cost of a recon on my electronic unit) ...In relation to your post - you can pick up the diagnostic tools off ebay (father in law recently purchased one) u can just plug in amd reset yourself...he didnt pay v much for it. Its reset all number of faults on varying vehicles so far.

re: Scenic converted to manual handbrake **Fixed""

Hi, thanks, I may invest in one of those.
You can get the Scenic/Grand Scenic handbrake cables from lots of online suppliers or EuroCar Part, GSF etc. They cost anything from 14 each side. I just used the ones of the car I took the handbrake off, nothing wrong with them.

Thanks so much for replying!

Ive managed to source everything I need but is it just a simple case of attaching the cables to calipers and then to the adjuster plate thingie (obvs need to cut a hole?) Im really after a little walkthrough of how to go about doi g the actual conversion...its a nightmare theres literally nothing online to suggest how to do it (our parts were shelved parts already off the other vehicle)

Once the carpet is up and the guide pipes are in place, push the caliper end of the cable through the rear axle (drivers side has a bracket that it needs to be pushed through first). Attach to calipers.
Now push the other end of cables up through the floor of the car. They will appear through the back plate of the lever assembly.
Forgot to say once guide pipes are in place you can put floor and carpets back.
Attach to pivot bracket and adjust.
No need to drill any holes.
