You need to get hold of a wind back tool. The pistons screw into the caliper and can be very stiff. Hahnes manual says you can use pliers but I've had no joy using that method!

Front right brake is stuck on 99 dakota


your problem sounds like a seized caliper. You will need a mechanic to unseize it and replace the caliper. Parts are generally not expensive but to do it yourself you will need knowledge of bleeding brake lines. The caliper is what pushes the brake pads tight against the rotor to stop you. when you release the brakes, the caliper loosens. when it seizes, it just doesn't release

Changing front and back brakes on vw golf tdi 54 plate


Replacing brake pads or rotors does not need to be difficult if you have the right tools. Volkswagen and Audi rear calipers require that the piston be rotated while being pushed back into the caliper.

Changed the 2 rear caliperson my x reg vw golf as the rightside one was siezed now i'm not getting any brakes even after i tried bleeding it. jase


Are the calipers new, refurbished or used? If it's used then chances are they are seized or have rusty slidders that need cleaning and grease. If they are refurbished or new then there is no pressure going inside the piston so keep bleeding it till you are certain that clean new fluid is coming out of the the bleeder valve. Try bleeding the system while engine is running. The booster will be under vacuum and might do the trick. Note: exercise all safety precautions while repairing a vehicle that is operating above ground.

How to replace rear disc pds on VW Golf 2.0 TDI 2006


Remove the wheel first.

In there you will see the brake pads.

The brake pads are held in place by the caliper. The caliper is secured with two 15 mm bolts, and two 13 mm on the opposite side.
Once you undo the caliper you should also find an apex clip on top op the pads.

Once you have done that , slide the caliper out and remove the pads.

To refit you may need to compress the caliper. You can use a clamp, but on VW I compress the caliper using a robust wooden stick as a lever inside the U shaped part.

Before putting the new brakes I use an hand file tool to mill the corners of the pad, this will increase aderence to the rotor disk.

Remember that the car will have reduced braking power when you install new pads.

Regards.

What colour is this light.
The Golf mk4 sdi certainly should have brake pad wear sensors front and rear and the light on dash for this is orange with a similar symbol to what you describe.
The ABS light is orange with ABS printed on it

Vw golf brakes rear seized


You have to clamp the flexible break hose with the appropriate tool that will not damage hose so that no pressure can go back up the break line when then piston is wound back.You crack the bleed nipple just enough that it only flows out when the pressure from the piston being wound back in pushes it out.Once piston is all the way back in retighten the bleed nipple,reassemble caliper etc and bleed.The reason you vent off fluid this way is not to put back pressure on the ABS,Bleeding the brakes is easier and the worst of the fluid(most stressed)is evacuated from the brake lines.Last thing top up the master cylinder with exactly the same fluid that is in the vehicle.Mixing fluids can be hazardous in respect of the ABS and seals throughout the brake system.When winding your pistons take special care as the pistons wind back in in opposite directions.
