    I bought the tool, some kind of Cube socket with prongs to deal with multiple different types of piston.

    I have turned the thing both ways but doesnt retract. I was thinking about losing the bleading scrrew when putin preassure on the piston and close it as soon as goes down.



    Is this going to work?



    Cheers,

    Miguel

On the rear brakes on this vehicle you have to screw the calipers in.

As the post above states for solid caliper pistons (which this vehicle has on the rear), there is a tool for this and you can rent it at AUTOZONE. ALSO REMEMBER, if you turn the brake caliper piston Clockwise and it does not go in, turn it COUNTER CLOCKWISE. I cannot remember which side is counter clockwise, but I think it is the left hand side (as you sit in the car).

Easiest way is to compress the caliper is with a "C" clamp.Open the bleeder on the back of the caliper to evacuate fluid.Don't push the fluid back to the master as this will mess up sensors on abs system.

If the caliper has a solid piston it means that you have to spin them in. there is a tool avaiable for this and you can find it at a auto parts store. if the piston is hollow use a c-clamp and turn the screw and the piston will move in....please rate. this.

X type
can't get the handbrake to work
evrything thing seems loose and not binding, i have lubricated the cable in the sleeve under the car and this moves easily, ihave had the calipers off and made sure the pistons move easily. i have operated the cam on the rear of the brake which pulls the mechanism on but nothing seems to make a difference
Presumably the handbrake works by pushing the piston in the same manner as the hydraulic system
can i get a manual anywhere?

How do you set up electric hand brake after fitting rear pads?(appears to be binding on).on s type jaguar.


Bulletin from Jaguar :

Electronic Park Brake (EPB)
Re-Calibration Procedure
2003 MY-ON
S-TYPE
M44998-ON

Issue:
On some 2003 MY-on S-TYPE vehicles, a customer may report a concern of premature
parking brake pad wear or the brakes binding. This condition can result if the electronic
park brake (EPB) system is not re-calibrated after the removal of the rear brake callipers
to replace the brake pads.
Action:
Should a customer express concern regarding the above, refer to the calibration
procedure detailed in this bulletin.

1. Reset the EB module:
a. Switch off the ignition.
b. Disconnect the battery for 30 seconds. For additional information, refer to STYPE
Workshop Manual Section 414-01.
c. Reconnect the battery.
2. Start the engine.
3. Firmly apply and release the foot brake five times.
4. Confirm that the message NOT CALIBRATED" or APPLY FOOT AND PARK
BRAKE" is displayed on the instrument cluster message center. This indicates that
the parking brake is in calibration mode.
5. Lightly press the foot brake pedal.
6. Apply the parking brake by using the EB switch.
7. Release the parking brake.
8. Release the foot brake.
9. Confirm that the brake warning lamp is no longer illuminated on the instrument
pack and that the NOT CALIBRATED" message is no longer displayed in the
message center.
10. Apply and release the EPB five times to ensure no error is present.

NB: It is also possible the actuator is bad though.

I have changed both rear callipers as the handbreak adjustment arms were seazed I also changed both disks and pads but the hand break won't grip? Do I need to adjust the cable tension under the car?


This should have electric hand brake.

Check with dealership as some models of Jaguar have a safety recall for rear brakes being applied without notice and at speed !

Im looking to buy a 1989 Jaguar XJS that needs rear brake attention.I hear rear end needs to drop to get at the callipers and discs>>Im experienced with domestic and foreign cars..Not so much...


Calipers and discs *can* be changed in situ, however its quite tricky. However dropping the rear subframe is nowhere near such a big job as people make out, the biggest problem can separating the exhaust pipes, as these all need to come off first.

How to change back brakes? I can't get the brake cylinder to go in.


Do you mean back brake pads or the back brake callipers?
To change pads you need to use a rear brake pads changing tool to screw in the calliper piston or if you are experienced enough you could screw in the calliper with a two mm thick piece of metal sheeting that fits into the grove of the piston.
If you need to replace the whole calliper remove the hand brake cable first and clamp the flexible brake hose remove brake hose, remove the callier with cylinder and then remove the calliper holder. fit new holder pads and locks and the calliper with the piston and the brake hose and the hand brake cable. Bleed the brakes. Mike

Rear pad replacement on a Jaguar S-Type


Well,

I fill you in what I learned today. I have a 2005 S-Type Jaguar and the dealer sayed it needed new pads in the rear. They wanted $300 just for the pads and another $150 or so to install. That $450 bucks to replace the brake pads only on the rear of the car. And of course, the extended warranty doesn't cover this, so I said no thanks. I found the best brake pads from Napa for $52. I purchased them through my brothers shop- saved a little. I done lots of brake pad replacements over the years, but not on a new car like the Jaguar. Well they are a little different and the frist one took me awhile . Here is the trick. 1) MAke sure the parking brake is off and you do this by starting the car, stepping on the normal brake and then pushing the parking break lever down while shutting off the car. 2) You then take the tire off, use jack stands to ensure safety.3) Take off brake callipers, 2 bolts and the brake pads should just fall off.4) take the anti-rattle plate off the old pads by prying it off carefully with a tiny screw driver- clean and then install on the new ones. 5) Here I release the the valve for the brake fluid. I did not want to damage the system if the fluid went back into the system when I retracted the calliper. You use some fluid, but you can add when finished. 6)You either need one of those brake calliper tools that you push the calliper in with and If you don't have the trick new one with the keys to turn the brake calliper cylinder, you can get by with the old version like I did and use a pair of channel locks to turn counter clockwise, while continuing to turn the tool. The cylinder needss pressure on it while you turn. This will put in in the proper place. 7) Ensure you have the slots up and down so that the pin in the pad fits up into the cylinder. you know this is correct when you have it perfect vertical and center within the calliper. Pay attention when taking off! 8) Set the brake pads in their proper place and then slide the calliper over them. IT should go over freely or else you need to turn more on the cylinder. 9) Tighten the bolts and replace the tire and you are done. Next side!
Hope this helps. -Dave @ dchristi@zianet.com
