Rear Brake Pad Change Help...



  Clio 197


How to release the piston to get it to retract? Is there some sort of gizmo related to the emergengy brake that keeps the piston from retracting? I seem to remember similar things in other cars but Ive never seen anything like this. It could be the same in the Peugeot 205 GTis as they take the same pads.

Anybody got any ideas?

Thanks,

Ed

Got it apart and the piston sort of screws in. I hope that is the proper way of doing it!

Defeated by the little torx headed bolts that hold the outer pad on though. What are they all about? My replacement DS2000 pads certainly dont have any holes for them to screw into that I can see. Got to get a little more high tech persuasion.

Thanks,

Ed
