Re: front brake pad replacement
I normaly agree.Did my wifes clio 197, with a g clamp and daughter helping.i said I would get wind bacl tool. I did my laguns and it was so easy.I took the disc off as i was changing them.I secured caliper with top bold and put the tip of fine nose pliers in the pin holes, screwed in while pushing and they went in in seconds....both sides
Good idea about popping the top bolt in to secure the caliper. Just did the rears on my Scenic and that would have been helpful. Will remember for next time.
Another handy one is that as I was changing the discs on mine also I had the 30mm socket out, double hex one from Halfrauds, for the hub nut and I found that it also fits the piston nicely so wound the piston in with my ratchet driver. Nice and easy.
