Question about 2006 Renault 181
Hi, I am not sure of your entire question, but I did a similar job not so long ago. From what I can make out, you are trying to push the pistons in so that you can replace the rear brake pads?
You have to both compress and twist (I recall clockwise) at the same time. The way I did this was to use a common G-Clamp which has a swivel mounting piece at the end such that you can screw in the clamp and then use some pipe pliers to grab and twist the piston.
It is a bit of a slow and cumbersome method but it is one way of doing it without the special tool (that Renault will not sell you!).
Hope this helps.
