I note they left the rear caliper hanging on the pipes and did not clean up the mounting face of corrosion that can/always builds up there, nor did they apply any barrier to prevent it.....I have not watched any of the other ones yet.

Everything on the jobs looks to have been done before and the cars are free from rust, no under engine protection either so getting at the oil change stuff is easier than it is in practice but at least it gives the diy man some idea of the tasks.

Also the tools and sizes needed is useful, and you see the job from start to finish in just a few minutes. I have posted up a series of them in the forum's least read sections----Renault on Renault Clio Maintenance, but also noted the particular slating reserved for the video on the C5 front brakes in an earlier post.

I have found videos from Autodoc on their youtube channel pretty good, but I hesitate to put up the one on changing the front brakes on a C5 because it got such a slating for not covering some of the key points, albeit it does give a clear idea of the scope of the job, tools needed etc.
The Youtube video is probably my first point of call to see whats involved in a job, but just like the printed Haynes manuals we all grew up with, they are by no means infallable!
