The rear callipers contain the hand brake mechanism, they need to be wound back to install the new pads, have a look in your local car part suppliers/accessory shop, the correct tool is about £10 or so. You can wind it back with a screw driver and a "G" clamp, they need to be wound clockwise when you look at the piston through the calliper frame, use a large screwdriver in the notches in the piston to turn it, sometimes the screwdriver needs to be sideways, this will be fiddly as you can usually onlt turn 1/4 of a turn at a time, squeeze the piston back with the clamp after a turn or so and repeat untill the piston is back enough to allow the pads in.

How to change the front brake pads on a v reg clio


The Renault clio should be easy,.jack up one wheel and remove the wheel and see what if any special tools will be needed. most have two bolts that hold the caliper to the back plate. The caliper hold the pads. Some of thes bolts are Allen head, some are Torq head, all are metric. some are held in with clips, remove the retaining pins and pull the clips out and the caliper comes out the front. Press the piston back into the caliper, so the new pads will fit over the rotor.

I am replacing the rear pads and cannot get the caliper to compress using a c-clamp. Is there something special I need to do or know on my montego 05 car to get the caliper to compress? Sincerely Desperate...


One, take your brake fluid reservoir cap off.
Two, use a thin piece of wood to help you compress the piston on the caliper....do it slow. This way, you don't create a lot of pressure to the reservoir and it won't overflow.
Three, these are the steps to removing and replacing the pads for the rear. It does mention a special tool....but you can use a c-clamp for the same purpose:

Rear To Remove:
  1. Check the brake fluid level in the brake master cylinder reservoir.
  2. If required, remove the fluid until the brake master cylinder reservoir is half full. CAUTION
    Care must be taken when servicing rear brake components without disconnecting the parking brake cable from the brake caliper lever.
  3. Remove the disc brake caliper. Support the caliper with mechanic's wire. CAUTION
    When the brake pads are separated from the brake caliper, new brake pads must be installed. The brake pads are one-time use only.
  4. Remove and discard the brake pads and spring clips from the brake caliper anchor plate. NOTE: Do not remove the anchor plate guide pins. The guide pins are press fit to the brake caliper anchor plate. If the guide pins are damaged a new anchor plate must be installed.
  5. Inspect the brake caliper anchor plate assembly.
  6. Check the guide pins and boots for binding or damage.
  7. Install a new brake caliper anchor plate if it is worn or damaged.
To Install:
NOTE: The left caliper piston turns clockwise and the right caliper piston turns counterclockwise.
  1. Using the special tool, turn and compress the brake caliper piston into the cylinder.
  2. Clean the residual adhesive from the brake caliper fingers and pistons using the specified brake parts cleaner. CAUTION
    Do not allow grease, oil, brake fluid or other contaminants to contact the brake pad or caliper mating surface. Do not install contaminated pads.
    NOTE: Install all the new hardware supplied with brake pad kit.
  3. Install the new spring clips and brake pads.
  4. Position the brake caliper and install the 2 bolts. Tighten caliper bolts to 23 ft-lbs (31 Nm).
  5. If necessary, fill the brake master cylinder reservoir with clean brake fluid.
  6. With the engine running, apply pressure on the brake pedal to seat the brake pads.
  7. Test the brakes for normal operation.

I have a Clio 172 sport but the rear brakes are not working, however the handbrake is fine? As all the braking is at the front of the car this is damaging the front discs?


Most of your braking occurs at the front of the car, anyways, but you need to get those rear brakes checked...

If you have a split (front-rear) master cylinder, check that. Did the fluid level drop enough at any time such that the system may have "sucked air" into the rear system only?
