Re: Clio Front Brakes and Reluctor Ring Replacement

Did you change both sides or just one.

Pretty sure you can see the gap between the ring and sensor if you look from below.

Make sure the ring isn't loose or has moved.
Jack car up and check the air gap while turning wheel. Shouldn't touch at any piont.

The gap is pretty well preset and if anything it would get bigger due to the sensor lifting away from it's seat due to rust build up- unless there is a problem with the ring.

Are the brake pads and discs in good condition.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
