    Vehicle : Mk1 renault scenic... I know I know but it drives

    Trim : Basic

    Engine : 1.6 16v

    Year : 2003

    Default

    You'll need a rewind tool to wind piston in on rear calipers mate.
    also a 7mm Allen key.
    And a think the caliper carrier bolt is e40 but sure someone will correct me.

    Sure there will be a how 2 on it in the how 2 section.

    But easy enough.

    Jack up (chocking front wheels an ensure hand brake is off)
    Remove wheels
    Remove caliper retaining spring
    Remove disc retaining bolts at this point as makes life easier if it's stuck.
    7mm Allen key remove sliders ( behind rubber bung on caliper)
    Tie caliper up out the way
    Remove carrier (e40 a think)
    Remove an replace disc
    Refit carrier remembering thread lock
    Wind piston back on caliper
    Fit new pads
    Clean an apply thin layer of grease to sliders
    Refit an refit retaining spring
    Refit wheels

    Pump foot brake until hard keep applied then apply handbrake
    Job done
