Suggested Solution

for cars with an electric handbrake you need to get a special diagnostic tool that plugs into the cars diagnostic socket which backs the motor off allowing you to wind the caliper pistons back,unless you have this tool you cant do it yourself,

Here is a walkthrough with pictures on replacing the rear brake pads on a Scenic II fitted with the automatic handbrake which will allow you to do them yourself .Probably the same set up as your Laguna .

This also refers to switching off h/brake without any equipment etc.
