Re: Renault Trafic Rear Brake Discs and pads

Hi, its not an over complicated job the only hard bit will be undoing the bearing nut. Best to do this with the bearing cover off, with the wheel still on and on the ground, with the brake on. Use a long bar and loosen the bearing nut, then loosen the wheel nuts before lifting the wheel. Not sure exactly which brake calipers are on the trafic, but they may need to be removed and lifted out of the way before the disc comes off. Don't strain the brake pipe support the caliper with a piece of wire or similar.

Replacing everything is opposite of taking off, but you will need to torque the bearing nut up properly to the right torque setting which will probably be over 200Nm (check exactly what it should be) which is usually higher than the average DIY torque wrench will go! So you may need to beg or borrow an torque wrench that will cope with the pressure!

Any problems, somebody on here will usually be able to point you in the right direction.
