Question about 2002 Jaguar X-Type
How do you get the callipers in
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.

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?
