How do get the piston in the rear caliper of a 2000 vw beetle to go in?


It needs to be twisted clockwise while being pushed in. It's best to get a rear brake caliper tool that does this easily. If you want to save some money and fight with it, you can try turning the piston with channel locks while pushing it in, but be careful not to damage the boot.
When using the tool, it helps if you spray the boot with brake cleaner. This lubes the boot a little so it slides rather than bunching up and tearing.
Also make sure to take the cap off of the master cylinder resevoir so that the fluid has somewhere to go as you push the piston in.

Cant push back cylinder on rear brake caliper on vw golf 1.4s


You will need to check to see if your VW has anti-lock brakes installed on it. The pistons that push in usually look like an inverted cup, hollow end facing the brake pads. The pistons with antilock brakes are usually solid across the top facing the brake pads and will need to be rotated in order for them to collapse back inwards. Some rotate easily, others are a bit more difficult. The pistons on my VW Beetle have two (2) angular grooves opposite one another. If your look like this you may be able to use the blunt end of some needle-nose pliars, or you can head over to your local auto parts retailer for a "magic box", a square cube with as many as five (5) different patterns for the buttons that insert into the angular grooves on different vehcles. Find the pattern that best fits your grooves and attache the magic box to a 3/8 rachet with an extension. Rotate the piston slowley in one direction, then the other to loosen it up. To collapse the piston I believe you will need to rotate counter clockwise. Good luck, this style piston is only on the rear wheels.

How do i get the rear brake piston to push back in?


Ensure all of your other brakes are assembled. If you've filled your brake fluid reservoir, put something under it to catch overflow. Place your old brake pad in place over the piston and use a C-clamp or large channel lock pliers to apply steady even pressure.

I need to set the brakes on my vw beetle. I pump up to 3 or 4 times before my brakes take. Please assist me


Sounds like air in the hydraulic system.

On each brake cylinder there is a bleed screw with a pipe nipple on it. Buy fresh brake fluid for the specification of the vehicle (Dot3 or Dot4), and an EasyBleed kit. Attatch easybleed pipe to each bleed nipple in turn, and slacken it off 1/2 a turn. -put the other end in a large jam jar.
Once you have undone one bleed nipple, top up brake reservoir to maximum, and pump foot pedal twice - re top up and repeat.
Tighten up bleed nipple, and move on to another untill complete.

If this does not solve the problem, check the rear brakes for automatic adjusters. Sometimes they sieze- or bend.
If defective - reoplace as a kit on both sides. Do not just replace one. All brake work should be completed as axle pairs.

Hope this helps.
