Sorry it looks like the original post has deleted them from his image hosting up-loader

IMO we should insist on uploads using the forums own attachment facility, only Mods can remove them then.

Once again sorry.

Re: Renault Espace - Rear Brake Pad Replacement*Pic's*

Thread resurrection but I guess MkIV Espace is getting a bit rare these days.

I'm in the midst of doing my rear pads. Being busy with other stuff they got left but thankfully the noise reported by Mrs Bendy Toy was the metal pad backing plate catching on the unworn rim of the disc. Its merely polished the rust so no harm done.

I wound the pistons back with pointed pliers into the two pin spanner holes in the piston and a trigger type G clamp. Just alternate one then the other. Wind it a turn; fit clamp and squeeze. Take clamp off and wind again; repeat until piston id fully back.

Its a bit of a faff but it does work and I may never do the job again on this car.
