Preliminaries Do 1 wheel at a time Use a jackstand on the wheel you are working on (safety First) Remove the tire on the selected wheel
The Brake caliper is usually held on by 2 bolts. Some of the bolts are Allen wrench type, usually about ¼ inch or 5/16 inch. Remove and the complete brake caliper can be lifted off the rotor. The pads can now be removed. Before installing the new pads you must first return the pad piston to their original position in the caliper. Open the hood of the engine compartment and remove the cover on the master cylinder. This allow the brake fluid to be returned to the master cylinder. To return the pad piston to the original position you will need a C clamp and a flat piece of metal like a small flat file. Put the flat piece of metal on the piston and use the C clamp to put pressure on the piston. Tighten the C clamp slowly and you will see the piston slowly retract into the caliper body. Now you can insert the new pads into the caliper. Mount the caliper over the rotor and reinstall the 2 bolts.

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.

possible clutch cable or cluth itself, check the clutch cable first to see if its stretched, i didnt check and put a new clutch in ,and wasted £250 , try euro car parts for cheapest clutch cable.
