Question about Cars & Trucks
Screwed in pistons replaced pads now rear brakes do not work- car has "good pedal" what did I do wrong
Make sure you bleed the air from the brake fluid fully. You may have an air lock even with "good pedal".

Your A8 and new shape A6s with electric parking brakes require an electric input to the vehicle to tell it to wind back the pistons/pads. Main dealers have this on their diagnostic equipment. You can also purchase after market tools that just do this operation, heres an example
I have only ever used a main dealer machine so im not sure how good an after market one will be. Im not aware of anyway of doing the job without an electrical input to wind back the pads, the motors are very powerful so I wouldnt reccommend trying it manually. Hope this helps.

You can adjust the shoes outward on the rear by removing the wheels and drums, then above the axle but below the wheel cylinder you will see an arm that is horizontal, pushing both of the shoes outwards. There should be an adjustment nut that you can turn to extend the arm to push the shoes out.
