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: do i need any special tools to change laguna front

The only specialty tool you will need outside of a good ratchet set is a caliper tool to push the piston back into the caliper. You can rent these from most auto parts store for free with a small returnable deposit.

Do not try to push the piston in without this tool as you would do with older vehicles. It must be rotated as it is pushed in and failure to do it right will ruin the caliper assembly.

Thanks for using FixYa, feel free to come on back with any other issues that may arise.

Front wheel bearings


first check the pads have not worn down to metal if they have the disc will have to be replaced , if the disc is in good condition and the pistons are free press them back into the cylinders and then the pads can removed .check the master cylinder does not over flow as the pistons are pushed back. Brake fluid is a paint remover. the wheel bearings don't have to be touched to replace pads. After new pads are fitted the brakes will have pumped to bring the pads out to the disc.

Power steering is winding and drakes are sticking


There are at least 2 items that will cause your problem. The first is when you changed the pads you place the caliper in a different place on the support pins that the caliper slides on to centralise the brakes on the rotor. These mounting pins are prone to rusting up and actually keeps one pad on the rotor as the caliper cannot centralise during brake application. The second is a problem that occurs when the brake fluid is pushed back into the master cylinder reservoir from pushing the piston back into the caliper. Muck in the lines is pushed back into the compensating ports in the Master cylinder causing the brakes to drag and build up pressure from the heat generated by having the brakes on. Try flushing out the brake system using metholated spirits or replace the master cylinder

Change brake pads


For starters the front and rear us disk pads and it is not hard to do. On the front jack up the front and us jack stand for safety. After you take of the wheel remove the two bolts at the back of the brake caliper remove the caliper and then the old pads us a C- clamp with one of the old pads installed in the caliper then just us the c-clamp to push the cylinder all the way in until it will go no further install new pads put back on. But before you do the next side hit the brake to push the cylinder back out. Go to other side do the same thing. On a side not you only need to replace the rear brakes every other time you do the front. The front wear twice as fast as they do most of the stopping.

How to install break pads


Front aren't to bad just remove tire.Caliper holds pads, there are to bolts to be removed they may be allen wrench type from back to front One on the top one on bottom of caliper. After removing and a small amount of wiggling should allow you to tip the caliper back away from rotor and allow you to unsnap pads from caliper. Next you need a large C-clamp you use this to slowly push cylinder back into caliper, The cylinder has to go all the way back in or after you install new pads you wont be able to get them back down over rotor.Once you have pads set in caliper replace caliper over rotor and replace bolts in caliper pads are changed. BUT before taking off with vehical drive back and forth to ensure the brake pads properly set up and that you have brakes before taking off down the road.ONE other thing you may encounter,after removing bolts to take caliper off there are to spacers that slide with bolts as brakes wear.These to spacers have to be pushed into the caliper to allow you to be able to get the calipers properly seated on rotor. These spacers are seated in rubber and sometimes you have to drive them back in, be careful with the brake line so you don't break it while changing brakes it does Not have to be taken off to change the pads.Good luck let me know how it goes.

I removed the rotor and brake pads. but when going to change the pads I can not get the piston to go back far enough to put the new ones in. How do you get the piston to push back in order to put the brake...


You will have to use a c-clamp or brake piston compressing tool to get that piston back in, while you have the brake master cylinder fluid reservoir cap off.

How do i release the brake caliper pistons to be able to fit new brake pads on a renault trafic 08 van. thank 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 to replace front brake pads


You'll need a few Metric wrenches and a large C-clamp or brake caliper piston tool to collapse the piston back into the cylinder. Unbolt the caliper, remove the old pads, install the new pads. Lubricate the areas where the caliper and pads go. Push the caliper piston back into the caliper and reinstall the caliper and tire. Make sure you pump up the brakes before you drive, to get the new pads seated.
