Hey.

Nothing scary, just the brake pedal is starting to pulse a little and looking at the disks they are past their prime.

Seeing as there is no manual I just wondered if there was anything quirky I needed to be aware of before swapping out for some replacements?

I'm guessing its basically clio.

Is it worth having a clio 1.5 diesel manual. Or is it not similar enough.

Thanks anyhow.

This pretty much what you need to know..




Socket sizes may differ from model to model but the procedure is the same.. :smile2:

Not seeing anything quirky or odd here :grin2:

Yeah, basically a Clio, internal and bodyshell parts different, mechanics should be close enough.

Make sure it covers your engine if you intend to delve that deep. Many variations of the 1.5 DCi out there and though the same basic engine, ancillaries such as EGR may well be different.

We like the ones where you hit your thumb with an 'ammer, jump and bang your head on the wheel arch, knocking the car off the jack and end up burning down the garage.... >:)

Seriously, shouldn't be an issue but shout up if any help needed.

I use a G clamp to compress the piston but do it like this..use one of the old pads..
but ..... open a bleed valve as you squeeze it, -- abs and master don't like the fluid forced back; you could otherwise easily damage one of both of these.

Well all done, no hassles apart from the 18mm needed which was fun. Blagged from a neighbour. Pads and calipers are the same but different, better anti rattle arrangement.

Got to be honest if the video is how dealers do it then I'm glad I do my own stuff, no cleaned threads, no copper slip, no dressing to the pads.

I may be old school with my dad being a mechanic (brave man calls him a fitter) but cleaning threads and copper slip is defacto for jobs like these, in the proper places of course.
