Replacing Discs, Pads, and Shoes on Renault Brakes

Replacing discs, pads and shoes on Renault brakes can be a tricky and difficult task if you don’t know what you’re doing. But, with a little bit of patience, some guidance, and a few tools, it can be done.

Before you get started, there are some things you will need. You will need the replacement discs, pads and/or shoes, a jack and jack stands, some lug nuts, a lug wrench, a flat surface where you can work, and a torque wrench. Depending on the type of brakes your Renault has, you may also need a shim or a caliper tool.

Start by properly jacking up the vehicle and placing it on jack stands. This will ensure that your brakes can be worked on safely and securely. Be sure to remove the lug nuts before raising your vehicle up.

When you have your vehicle up and off the ground, you can begin to remove your old discs and pads. To do this, you will need to remove the retaining bolts which usually require an 8mm socket. Once these have been removed, you can then pull the disc away from the hub.

Once you have removed the old discs, you can then move onto the brake pads. Again, you will need to use an 8mm socket to remove the two retaining bolts which are located at the top and the bottom of the caliper. Once these have been removed, you can go ahead and pull out the old brake pads.

Once the old discs and pads have been removed, you can go ahead and replace them with the new parts. Begin by fitting the new discs onto the hub, followed by the new pads. Be sure to use the correct torque when replacing the retaining bolts, otherwise you may damage the brakes.

Once the new discs, pads and shoes have been fitted, you need to check that they are all seated correctly and that the brake pads are retracting when you press on the brake pedal. This will ensure that your brakes are functioning correctly and safely.

Finally, you can move onto the shoe replacement. This is a similar process to the disc and pad replacement, but you will need to make sure that you use the correct caliper tool. Otherwise, you may find that your brakes are not working correctly.

Once the entire process is complete, you will have successfully replaced the discs, pads and shoes on your Renault brakes. Just remember to always be careful when working on your brakes and only use the correct tools.
