Re: Renault Laguna II - Phase 1 - Wheels and Tyres - Seized Rear Brake Calipers
I read about the piston needing to be rotated in one of the Clio threads so I tried that on mine and it worked fine. It needs to be rotated clockwise at the same time as depressing it.
I didn't buy the special tool, I simply used a pair of long nose pliers, opened with one end in each of the holes to rotate the piston and with the caliper held steady in a vice pushed the piston back in quite easily.
Remember to bleed the breaks after its all been put back together...
