Re: Brakes on a Renault Trafic van

Hi, I do my own so I'm lucky.
Front pads cost about 50. Job done in 1 hour, both sides. Pistons [2] on each caliper just push back in. I use a G clamp..
Rear discs have a double bearing in them They cost about 110 each. You need a 36mm socket they might be tight on the stub shaft. Knock them off with a steel bar and hammer or a slide hammer. You have to disconnect the handbrake cables, take pads out, re-assemble caliper and then take caliper off. Job time about 1.5 hours each side. Rear piston screws back in, one each side. Look for splits in the dust covers. They are a **** to change. Good luck. grstools.
