are you talking about the large piston that pushes out the pads?
If so you will need a c clamp to tighten it and push it back in .

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.

their isnt none ,you need a special kit to locate the timing ,where a bolt is removed in the bottom of the block just infront of the bell housing at the front of the engine and a special bolt put in that locates the crankshaft.Now their is no crankshaft keyway on this motor and the bottom pulley bolt has to be pulled up to 120lbs ,for this their is another piece that bolts to a starter motor bolt hole and locks the ring gear up .You should be able to buy ths kit in a auto factor its kit number ast 4390 .

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.
