if its like the 2.0 HDi then this should help:

REMOVAL - REFITTING REAR BRAKE CALIPERS (CALIPER LUCAS)

1 - REMOVAL

Release the handbrake .

Remove :

the wheel
the brake pads



Unhook the handbrake cable (1) .

Remove :

the rigid pipe (2) on the caliper (plug this pipe)
the 2 caliper support bolts (3)
the caliper + bracket assembly
2 - REFITTING

Visually check :

the sealing of the piston
the disc for wear
Fit :

the caliper + caliper bracket
the bolts (3) (tightening torque 3.2 da.Nm)
the rigid pipe (2) on the caliper (tightening torque 1.5 da.Nm)
Hook the handbrake cable (1) .

fit the brake pads .

bleed the brakes .

Fit the wheel .

Tighten the wheel bolts : 9 da.Nm .

i think yours would be Lucas on the rear as ive worked on some 307s petrol and diesel and they have been Lucas its not on common to have bosch on the front and Lucas on the rear,

if you want to remove the caliper then remove the 2 bolts (number 3 on the pic) then you need to remove the brake pipe (number 2 in the pic) am near sure its a 12-13mm spanner is needed its easy to do just make sure you clamp the flexi hose to stop brake fluid from pouring out
