Changed the front pads on my son's Laguna a few years ago. The discs were held on with Allen Screws which had been rounded. I used a Dremmell type tool fitted with a thin grinding wheel to cut a slot in the head of the screws and used a flat screwdriver to get them out. I always use a "G" cramp to compress the piston and use Copperslip on the ends and back of each new pad to prevent seizing up.
