Actually, you need a "cube tool" and need to twist the caliper/piston head clockwise in order to compress it. A C-clamp will not work.

SOURCE: rear disc pistons, are they wind in? on a renault trafic van

I replaced the rear pads on my Renault Laguna on the weekend by releasing the hand brake cable from the spring loaded cam, craching open the bleeder nipple and jacking the hand brake cam until the piston was fully extended.
This then anabled the piston to be rotated clockwise at the same time applying pressure to move the piston fully in.
The Haynes maintenance manual describes the process as simply cracking open the bleeder nipple and rotating the piston with circlip pliers at the same time applying pressure on the piston to to wind it back in.
This does NOT work!
The other important thing is to make sure the inner pad spring or locating clips, clip into the recess groove on the piston, making sure the piston face stays intact and flush to the metal face of the pad.

SOURCE: How To Change Rear Brake Pads on Audi A6 2006

Remove the tires, Remove the calaper bolts, (small heads on them 12mm or so) Remove calaper, Pads are setting in a holder. Lube new pads with litheum grease and place in holder. (look at old pads, one or both may have small metel tab on one end) If the new pads have the tab, put that pad where the old pad with the tab was. (ie. tab to the inside) Press pistion in with a 'C' clamp. If it won't go in easly, it may screw in. If the parking brake cable is hooked to the calaper, it probly screws in. Use large pliers to screw in calaper piston. Place calaper over pads and install bolts (lube bolts) Rember to pump brakes befor driving . to get a solid peddle.

SOURCE: how to change rear brake shoe pads of 2005 mitsubishi lancer

Hello, this do it yourself project is very manageable if it is brake pads that you are replacing on your car; if they are disc shoes it may be a little bit harder. In essence a brake job can be done straight out of a auto manual for your car and is not to diffucult as long as you follow good safety procedures while jacking up your vehicle and removing your wheels. First, I would park your car and setting your parking break will make your rear brakes impossible to get off so do not set it. I would however keep this in mind and be very careful working on your car then. I would chaulk your front wheel with a chaulk block or a brick. I would loosen your lug nuts just to break the intial torque I would then jack up the rear of your vehicle and set jack stands under your car in the proper locations. Then systematically, remover your wheel and then the two bolts holding your caliper to the spindle. Carefully, remove the caliper and do not let it hang becuase you will bend your brake line. Remove old shoes, then compress the caliper with a caliper compression tool from your local auto parts store or a c-clamp and a small block of wood. Inspect the rotor for deep gouges, a blue tint, or if you know you have gotten them really hot before I would replace the rotor. Next, install the new brake pads, put rotor back onto spindle and insert bolts back into caliper housing. Repeat for the next side and put the wheel back on and remember to torque your lug nuts to the proper specification. I hope this fixes your problem for you!

Renault trafic brake calipers on the front can be pushed in with a G-clamp, but rear calipers need to be wound in, if you look at the piston it has notches for a winding tool!

How do i change the brake cylinders on the back drums? its leaking braking fluid and what should i se to re-seal the usnroof


Hi:
You can buy complete rear brake cylinders, and while you have everything apart to change them, you probaby need to replace the drum brake pads, if they have fluid on them. use a line wrench to undo the brake line on the back of the cylinder to avoid rounding off the fitting.

Poor brakes


You mean brake load sensor.
Usually by the back axle. It spreads the braking evenly between front and rear brakes.
When did you last change the brake fluid. It is hygroscopic(attracts water).
When it is contaminated with water it makes your brakes fade very quickly.
