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

    Trim : Basic

    Engine : 1.6 16v

    Year : 2003

    Default

    Depends what your like with the spanners mate rear shocks will take about 10 mins a side.

    Upper controls arms are a bit more fiddly and time consuming on axle stands.
    Took me about 2 an half hours to do the first one. But did second 1 In about 40 mins

    As for brakes more involved. As could be a number of things but have a go a bleeding them and take it from their

    Is it a diesel?
    If it is the pedal will creep down under presssure which is normal. Its called diesel creep!
