I have a 06 tdi and I drive like crazy so a little experienced in this as jettas have a known issue with premature rear brake pad failure. The above user is right but not very helpful, I would recommend a bentley manual and a search of ebay. I found a multitool that will work on vw, buick, ford and many makes for turning the caliper piston back into cylinder and it was not expensive compared to the $500 the dealer wanted and I have done this 2-3 times already. If need to replace rotor you need a special multipoint tool (m14 socket) that is very hard to find. I bought one on internet from german company, look up Stahlwille M14.

2006 Honda Civic rear brake shoe replacement, can't get drum back on after shoe replacement?


there is an adjustment rod that adjusts the brake shoes out as they wear. so your parking break will work. When you install new pads, they are larger diameter than the old pads you removed, so you need to turn the adjustment rod all the way back in untill the brake drums only drag slightly. It is a good idea to clean and lubricate this adjustment rod assembly when you do a brake job.

Remving caliper pins on 2000 vw jetta and caliper


For front brake pads replacement you need only usually wrench set, inclusive 7 mm allen key also. But for rear brake pads replacement you need obligatory a special caliper piston pressing tool, in order to press back rear caliper piston with parking brake automatic adjustment!!!
For front brake pads. You should buy the brake pads (with wear sensor). For change front brake pads you must raise vehicle, remove wheels, extract the retaining spring of the caliper, and remove the caliper as follow:
1. Do not disconnect the brake hose from the caliper, and do not allow the caliper to hang by the brake hose!
2. Remove top and bottom caps (on back side of the caliper) for access to guide pins, then unbolt and remove them from the brake carrier. Remove the caliper.
3. Now you must thoroughly clean the brake calipers (free of grease).
4. Remove outer brake pad from brake carrier.
5. Pull inner brake pad out of brake caliper piston.
6. Check up the brake fluid level on the reservor, and emptying if neccessary!
7. Push piston back into brake caliper housing.
8. Install inner brake pad (with expanding spring) in brake caliper piston. (Arrow marked on pad - if exist, must point in direction of brake disc rotation when vehicle is moving forward).
9. Install outer brake pad into brake carrier.
10. Bolt brake caliper housing to brake carrier using two guide pins. Tightening torque is 25 Nm.
11. Install both caps.
12. Insert retaining spring into brake caliper housing. Important: Depress the brake pedal firmly several times while the car is stationary so that the brake pads adjust to their normal operating positions!!! Check brake fluid level and top up if neccessary!!!

Unfortunately, you need a 'cylinder rewind tool.
That's what made it impossible to compress.
It's basically a 'vice', but it turns, and thus screws the cylinder in.
It's a specialised tool.

I had the exact problem today on my in-laws 06 jetta. Come to find out - this model has an electrical parking brake in the rear. The piston will not go in manually like other disc brakes. You must disconnect the electrical wire in the back and run a jumper to the connection from a power source like the battery and the piston will go in.

How to replace the front brake pads


    Calipers With Guide Pins
  1. Step 1 Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery. Remove the wheel. Using an open wrench hold the lower guide pin. Remove the bolt that secures the caliper.
  2. Step 2 Pivot the caliper up and then suspend it from the frame using mechanic's wire. To remove the pads, slide the pads straight out.
  3. Step 3 Using a C-clamp, compress the caliper piston into the bore. Insert the new pads by removing the mechanics wire and pivoting the caliper back into it's place.
  4. Step 4 Clean the old bolt and apply thread locking compound. If the old bolt can not be used install a new bolt. Hold the guide pin using a back-up wrench when tightening the bolt. Using a torque wrench, torque the bolt to 26 foot/pounds. Install the wheels. Add oil to the master cylinder reservoir. Reconnect the negative battery cable to the battery.
    Calipers With Sleeves and Bushings
  5. Step 1 Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery. Remove the wheel. Remove the bolt that secures the caliper to the carrier.
  6. Step 2 Push the caliper up and pivot the caliper bottom out of the carrier. Remove the pads and the anti-rattle springs.
  7. Step 3 Install the new pads by putting the anti-squeal pads onto the caliper and then sliding the new pads onto the carrier. Put the caliper top back into place. Remove the mechanics wire and push the caliper up so that it pivots back into place and the bottom.
  8. Step 4 Clean the caliper mounting bolts. Install the caliper mounting bolts and using a torque wrench, torque the bolts to 18 foot/pounds. Install the wheel. Add oil to the master cylinder reservoir. Reconnect the negative battery cable to the battery.

Instructions Instructions for Replacing Rear Break Pads. Hyundai


Things You'll Need:
  • New brake pads
  • C-clamp
  • Allen head, star head, or 6-point socket wrench
  • Lug nut wrench
  • Brake fluid
    Remove the old Brake Pads
  1. Step 1 Park your car on a level surface. If you have a stick shift car, make sure the car is in gear. Place blocks in front of the front tires so the car does not move while you are working on it.
  2. Step 2 Open the hood of your car. Locate the master cylinder and brake fluid container. If necessary, remove brake fluid until the level in the container is less than half full. A turkey baster is a good tool for this. Put the brake fluid in the plastic container and dispose of it the way you dispose of motor oil.
  3. Step 3 Raise the rear end of your car with your car jack. Remove the rear tire or wheel assembly.
  4. Step 4 Use the socket wrench to remove the lower caliper bolt from the back of the caliper. Rotate the caliper up.
  5. Step 5 Remove the brake pads from the caliper.
  6. Install the new Brake Pads
  7. Step 1 Insert the pads into the caliper.
  8. Step 2 Place a large C-clamp on the body of the caliper and slowly tighten the clamp evenly. Compress the piston until it is flush with the caliper.
  9. Step 3 Lower the caliper and use the socket wrench to attach the lower caliper bolt. Tighten the bolt to 16 to 24 ft. lbs. (22 to 32 Nm).
  10. Step 4 Replace the tire wheel assembly tire. Lower the car to the ground. Pump the brake pedal a few times to seat the brake pads.
  11. Step 5 Add fluid to the master cylinder container to replace any you removed before you removed the old brake pads.
  12. Step 6 Season the brake pads by making only gentle stops when you are driving for the first week after you install the new brake pads. Try not to do any hard stopping when you are seasoning the brakes.
