Re: Renault Scenic 2 - Rear Brake Pad Replacement

I know that, which is why I mentioned it.

However, I have now woken up and re-reading your post I see that you are referring to the bolts in the pad set whichare of course guide pin bolts.

I read it wrong because one part of the thread was talking about replacing the disc, which needs the mounting bolts removed and it was asked why only 2 bolts were supplied for what would be a 4 bolt job.

I'm not the only one asleep though, even the chap at my Renault dealer was confused as to which bolts were the mounting bolts. It was hard to explain over the telephone to him, but when I said that the guide pins have a little rubber bellow on them, he was able to look at a diagram and could see that wasn't the ones I wanted. At least, that should be the case, we'll see what arrives in the post.

2x bolts and 1 x hub nut was 6 with VAT. It was another 9 for the hub nut cap , so I will re-use the old one.

As the mounting bolts are not going to come off easily due to the heads being fooked, I am probably going to wimp out on this one and get a local garage to do it. Much better than crouching in the cold and wet for hours, cussing.
