SOURCE: rear brake to remove replace disk and service due binding

Preliminaries Do 1 wheel at a time Use a jackstand on the wheel you are working on (safety First) Remove the tire on the selected wheel
The Brake caliper is usually held on by 2 bolts. Some of the bolts are Allen wrench type, usually about ¼ inch or 5/16 inch. Remove and the complete brake caliper can be lifted off the rotor. The pads can now be removed. Before installing the new pads you must first return the pad piston to their original position in the caliper. Open the hood of the engine compartment and remove the cover on the master cylinder. This allow the brake fluid to be returned to the master cylinder. To return the pad piston to the original position you will need a C clamp and a flat piece of metal like a small flat file. Put the flat piece of metal on the piston and use the C clamp to put pressure on the piston. Tighten the C clamp slowly and you will see the piston slowly retract into the caliper body. Now you can insert the new pads into the caliper. Mount the caliper over the rotor and reinstall the 2 bolts.

SOURCE: how to remove and check operation of, including handbrake

1. Chock your wheels 2. Loosen the wheel nuts on the wheel that you're interested in (not too much - just crack the pressure) 3. Jack the wheel up, remove the wheel nuts and the wheel. 4. At this point you have sufficient room to inspect your brake pads and the cable connection. 5. If you require further access to change pads etc, you may remove the lower LOCK bolt - this will allow you to swing the caliper up and access the pads etc. Be careful not to press on the brake when you're carrying this step out - it might seem like a good idea to check if the piston moves freely, but you'll regret it when you pop the piston clear from the well and have to try to get it and the diaphragm back into place (almost impossible - save yourself the time, effort and headache and get a replacement from the local wreckers!) 6. If you need to replace the entire caliper - you just need to remove the remaining swing bolt - ensure you cover the brake fluid hose to prevent it from getting dirty when you are replacing the caliper. Do not touch the master cylinder or you will have to bleed the ENTIRE brake system rather than just the one line. 7. If you've disconnect the brake fluid line, you WILL also need to bleed the air from that line before you can drive again. Attach a clear piece of PVC tube to the little nipple on the caliper, loosen the nipple slightly to allow it to flow fluid and air through and drop the other end of the PVC into a container. Have an assistance pump the brakes slowly and thoroughly for you whilst you watch the tube for air. Once you are completely certain no more air bubbles are being squeezed out of the system. As you follow this procedure monitor the level of the brake fluid reservoir under the bonnet (LHS from memory) and top it up as required.
Incidentally, you can check the handbrake connection by simply jacking the car up and wriggling under for a look...
Hope this helps, Sherwin

    Im pretty sure the handbrake cable on my 2004 Jetta has broken, is this an easy fix or should i consult a mechanic?


    here is the procedure from autozone.com. there are no special tools, but you need to be handy. Judge for yourself.


    Removal & Installation

    1. Raise and safely support the rear wheels.
    2. On Front Wheel Drive models, remove the heat shield above the exhaust in the center tunnel.
    3. Locate the threaded adjusters. On All Wheel Drive (AWD) models, they are located in the front of the lower control arms, on Front Wheel Drive (FWD) vehicles, they are located in the tunnel on the underbody of the vehicle.
    4. Remove the locking clip between the hex nut and the adjustment housing.
    5. Counter hold the hex nut with a 13mm wrench and thread the adjustment housing to loosen the cable until the adjustment housing is fully loosened, then slide the 2 portions of the cable toward one another.
    6. Remove the lock clip at the brake caliper and remove the cable, taking care to not damage the cable boot.
    7. On Front Wheel Drive models, remove the heat shield above the muffler and push aside.
    8. Remove the cables from the cable brackets. Should the assembly aid fall out it is not necessary to reinstall it.
    9. Using a suitable flat blade screwdriver, remove the cables from the retaining bracket at the under body tunnel where the cables enter the interior of the vehicle.
    10. Remove the rear portion of the center console, then using a suitable flat blade screwdriver, push the cables toward the parking brake lever and press the cable ball end out of the bracket.
    11. From under the vehicle, press the guide sleeve-locking element together and pull the cables out of the guide sleeve.
    To install:
    1. Guide the parking brake cables through until the guide sleeve locks into place.
    2. If not previously removed, remove any plastic parts at the hand brake lever adjustment bracket as they are not needed for installation.
    3. Using a No. 2 flat-blade screwdriver, lock the adjustment bracket at the hand brake lever to prevent it from turning.
    4. Insert the cable end ball through the mounting in the adjustment bracket, making sure the cable locks into place in the bracket.
    5. Working under the vehicle, route the cables through their routing brackets and attach them to the brake caliper.
    6. The balance of installation is in reverse order of removal noting the following:
    7. Adjust the parking brake cable and check its operation.
    Disc Brakes
    1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
    2. Release the parking brake. It may be necessary to unscrew the adjusting nuts to provide slack in the brake cable.
    3. At each rear wheel brake caliper, remove the spring clip retaining the parking brake cable to the caliper.
    4. Lift the cable from the caliper mount and disengage it from the parking brake lever.
    5. Pull the cables out from under the vehicle.
    6. Installation is the reverse of removal.
    7. Adjust the parking brake as described at the beginning of this section.
    Drum Brakes
    1. Block the front wheels and release the hand brake.
    2. Raise and safely support the rear of the vehicle.
    3. Remove the rear brake shoes.
    4. Remove the brake cable assembly from the back plates.
    5. Remove the cable adjusting nuts at the handle and detach the cable guides from the floor pan.
    6. Pull the cables out from under the vehicle.
    7. Installation is the reverse of removal. Adjust the parking brake and road test the vehicle.

    Replace rear brake pads


    Rear disc brake pads offer better performance and are not as affected by moisture like conventional brake shoe style brakes are. Rear disc brakes are similar to front disc brakes. The main difference is that rear disc brake systems must incorporate the emergency brake system. There are two methods widely used for the emergency brake with rear disc systems. The first system is a brake shoe inside the brake disc that is actuated by the emergency brake lever. The second is a screw style actuator inside the brake caliper. When activated the brake pads are forced into the brake disc and held tightly by the emergency brake lever.
    READ COMPLETELY BEFORE STARTING
    Step 1 - Identify Rear Disc Brake Components
    rear_brake_pads.jpg Rear disc brake assembly includes; rear brake disc, rear brake pads, brake caliper mount and a caliper mounting screw. (Note: Some vehicles do not have the rotor mounting screw.)
    Step 2 - Removing the Rear Brake Caliper Mount Bolts
    rear_brake_pads_2.jpg To replace rear brake pads and rotors the rear brake caliper needs to be removed. First loosen the rear brake caliper mount bolts and remove them. Turn counter clockwise.
    Step 3 - Lift Rear Brake Caliper from The Caliper Mount
    rear_brake_pads_3.jpg After the caliper mount bolts have been removed, gently lift the brake caliper from the caliper mount. Inspect the caliper slides; they should move freely in the caliper mount. Remove rear brake pads and hardware.

    Step 4 - Removing Caliper Mount Bolts
    rear_brake_pads_4.jpg With a socket wrench or other appropriate removal tool, loosen the rear brake caliper mounting bolts. Remove bolts and lift the caliper mount and remove it from the vehicle. Remove the retaining screw from the disc mounting hole. Tap the rotor gently to release any rust that has accumulated between the rotor and bearing hub. Lift brake rotor from wheel hub holding on tightly, using both hands. You do not want to drop the rotor.

    Step 5 - Removing Rear Brake Rotor
    rear_brake_rotor.jpg Remove the retaining screw from the disc mounting hole, tap the rotor gently to release any rust that has accumulated between the rotor and bearing hub. Lift brake rotor from wheel hub, hold on using both hands and do not drop.

    Step 6 - Install New Brake Rotor
    rear_brake_rotor_2.jpg Check the new rotor against the old brake rotor to make sure they are the same size. Clean the mating surface on the wheel hub before the new brake rotor is installed. Reinstall rotor retainer screw.
    Step 7 - Reset Rear Brake Caliper
    rear_brakes_7.jpg Before new brake pads can be installed, the rear brake caliper must be reset. The reset tool winds the piston back into position so the new brake pads will fit. This style of brake caliper will not compress with a clamp tool; it can only be reset with the proper reset tool.
    Step 8 - Reinstall Rear Caliper Mount and Install New Rear Brake Pads
    rear_brake_rotor_3.jpg After the caliper has been reset, reinstall caliper mounting bolts and make sure the bolts are tight. Then match up the old brake pads to the new brake pads. They should be exactly the same except, of course; the old ones will be worn out. Check the new brake pads for proper fit and install any brake hardware that is required.
    Step 9 - Remount Rear Brake Caliper
    rear_brake_rotor_4.jpg Reinstall the brake caliper, align brake pad hardware and reinstall caliper mounting bolts. (Note: align the rear peg of the brake pad to the groove in the caliper piston.) Recheck and retighten all caliper and caliper mount bolts. Bleed brake system to relieve any air in the system. Before driving the vehicle, push the brake pedal down and let it up slowly. This operation forces the brake pads to travel to the brake rotors. DO NOT DRIVE VEHICLE until proper brake pedal operation resumes. When test driving vehicle listen for any unusual noises during the operation of the brakes.
    WARNING! Always have the vehicle under inspection on level ground, in park with the emergency brake on. Always wear protective eyewear, gloves and necessary clothing before inspection or work begins. Never crank an engine over when anyone is near the battery or engine. Always have an operational fire extinguisher close by, obey all first aid instructions in the event of an injury. Never stand in front or behind a vehicle when cranked over or running. When engine is cranked over keep hands and clothing away from rotating components. Never move a car without proper brake pedal operation.

    How to remove rear calipers


    1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
    2. Matchmark the relationship of the wheel to the axle flange. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
    3. Reinstall two lug nuts to retain the rotor.
    4. If the caliper is being removed from the vehicle for replacement or overhaul, perform the following:
      • Disconnect the brake hose from the caliper. Plug the opening in the caliper and the brake hose to prevent fluid loss and system contamination.
      • Detach the parking brake cable by lifting up on one end of the cable spring clip to free the end of the cable from the lever.
    5. Remove the bolt and washer attaching the cable support brake to the caliper body assembly.
    6. Remove the sleeve bolt, then remove the caliper body assembly. Pivot the caliper body up to clear the rotor and then slide it inboard off the pin sleeve.
    7. If the caliper is being removed for shoe and lining replacement or to provide access to the support bracket, rotor of wheel brake components, hang the caliper from suspension using a suitable wire hook so as not to stretch or damage the brake hose or brake cable.
    8. Inspect the pin boot, bolt boot and sleeve for cuts, tears or deterioration. If damaged, replace the boots.
    To Install:
    1. Install the caliper assembly, as follows:
      • If not replaced, remove the pin boot from the caliper body assembly and install the small end over the pint sleeve (installed on the caliper support) until the boot seats in the pin groove. This is to prevent cutting the pin boot when the sliding body assembly onto the pin sleeve.
      • Hold the caliper body assembly in position it was removed and start over the end of the pin sleeve. As the caliper body assembly approaches the pin boot, work the large end of the pin boot in the caliper body groove. Then push the caliper body fully onto the pin.
      • Pivot the caliper body assembly down, using care not to damage the piston boot on the inboard shoe. Compress the sleeve boot by hand as the caliper body move into position to prevent boot damage.
      • After the caliper body assembly is in position, recheck the installation of the pad clips. If necessary, use a small prytool to re-seat or center the pad clips on the support abutments.
    2. Install the sleeve bolt and tighten to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
    3. Fasten the cable support bracket (with the cable attached) with the retaining bolts and washer. Tighten to 32 ft. lbs. (43 Nm).
    4. If disconnected, attach the end of the parking brake cable to the parking brake lever by lifting up on the end of the cable spring clip and work the end of the parking brake cable into the notch in the lever.
    5. Unplug and attach the brake hose, if it was disconnected.
    6. Remove the two lug nuts retaining the rotor.
    7. Install the wheel and tire assembly, aligning the marks made during removal.
    8. Carefully lower the vehicle, then bleed the brake system if the brake hose was disconnected.
    9. Firmly depress the brake pedal 3 times to seat the pads against the rotors.
