Excellent tutorial, clear and easy to follow, perfect if you are a novice, looking for the same for the front pads now. - Reply

The front pads should be a lot easier because there’s no awkward handbrake to deal with just push back the caliper pistons with a long screwdriver pushing it evenly both sides.

You can also rewind them using a 12v source rather than taking the cover off (I was worried on my scenic that it might leak if I broke the seal). The cars know when to stop winding as they sence the current increase when the motor jams. We humans can just use our ears. As long as you take the wire off the battery the very second the motor stops you’ll be fine.

Here is me doing mine this weekend.
