I'm going to change my discs and pads on my Peugeot Partner. I have a little query concerning the piston retraction. In the Haynes manual it says to clamp the brake hose and use a brake bleed kit. But every other tuition shows to siphon a small amount from the brake resovoir. Which is best. Also is it essential to replace the guide pin bolts or can they be reused with a suitable relocking compound? Thanks

Brake renewel

I realise l dont have the same vehicle as you (l own a 307 2.0 hdi), l changed my discs and pads all round, The front ones l just pushed the pistons back into there calipers but the rear required a winding in tool. I had to borrow one of my friend as they cost roughly 70 quid.
With regards to the brake fluid l would just syringe some off, l have tried both ways, (mole grips and syringe) it is so much easyier. Dont get me wrong applying a pair of moles grips is simple, but there is no chance of damage to the brake hoses if you just syringe some out.
Hope this helps,
Good luck Paul

Its much easier to fit your pads, and then remove the lid on the reservoir for the break fluid, and then place a cloth or rag around the reservoir, and then pump the breaks till at a satisfactory braking level, jobs done, hope this helps, as its the easiest way possible, other than bleeding, plus, on removing the bleed nipples, 7 out of 10 times the nipple will just break off. Regards whistler, ps if youd like any more help please dont hesitate to post up
