Question about 1986 Renault Sport
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.
