Windback tool for Laguna II rear brakes

I am just wondering what windback tool is best for doing the rear brakes on a 2003 Laguna II 1.6 with a manual handbrake? Just looking for recommendations for a tool for this particular car. If I buy an expensive kit with lots of adapters for various makes I'll be paying for items that I'll never use and maybe getting something that is less than optimal for a Laguna?

Here is an example of a kit I was looking at

The reason I need it is I posted a thread about one rear brake getting (much) hotter than the other brakes. Have had the car in a garage where they did some work on the caliper but now it appears that the caliper needs replacing.

I want to change one rear caliper, the rear discs and rear pads. I have replaced front calipers, pads and discs on an older Renault so I'm not a total novice. But I have never worked on rear disc brakes or brakes that needed to be wound back.

Thanks for any advice

Re: Windback tool for Laguna II rear brakes

I know Draper supply a simple wind-back cube which may do the job although you may have to exert quite a bit of pressure also you can adjustable units where the pins can be moved. Also if you are lucky it may be possible to use a pointy pair of pliers.
