Re: laguna mk1 bonnet lock

always refer to a haynes manual when fixing a car, it might seem a bit steep initial outlay, but it will easily pay for itself in the long run.
second hand copies are always kicking about on ebay or car boot sales for about 5.

discs or drums ??? front or back or both???
replacement caliper from a scrapper is 15-25. if its drums on back buy new pistons, as not worth messing about with with risks involved if they fail, buy a axle pair to ensure you dont get once side fail later.

when winding caliper back in, make sure brake oil cover is off (or / and) bleed nipple is slightly open to relieve excess fluid pressure.
