SOURCE: rear brake cylinders are stuck, can not push them in

I have a 2004 SAAB 93 and just finished replacing the brake pads and rotors yesterday. On the piston itself you should have two little notches. You can either or a GM rotor reset tool that will push into the two little notches and push against the piston while rotating it clock wise. Or the way that I did it was to take a C clamp and put the caliper back on the car. Clamp it on the back of the caliper to the front of the caliper so it will remain stationary. Then take a pair of needle nose pliers and rotate the two notches clockwise while pushing into the caliper. It will take some strength but you should be able to push them in. Be sure that you spray the boot around the piston when some WD 40 so it does not crack and or break during the process. If you have any additional questions about this feel free to email me.

SOURCE: replacement of rear brake pads on 2006 vw passat with electronic

Hey, I knew a Chris Arnold In High School! The Easiest way to fix this is to Put the Pad back on that goes on the Piston and use it as a Buffer. Compress Further with Tool or Channel Locks while Slowly Releasing the Bleeder Valve. Once Compressed Close the Bleeder Valve Quickly as you do not want Air in the System. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!

HOW DO I ADJUST A HAND BREAK THATS LOOSE?


I recommend you get a Haynes repair manual on your vehicle as there are several adjustments you may need to look at. If this is the first time you have had this problem and have less than 50,000 miles on the brake pads then it is most likely the cable and there are a couple of places to adjust in most cases. If you have 50,000 or more miles on those read pads you may need to replace the rear brake pads. The manual will help you in doing this repair correctly.

Bmw 520i 1999 abs/asc lights on diagnostic


Check to see if your brake pads and rotors are in good condition. Or if you have replaced the pads yourself and have not reset the wheel sensors this would cause the ABS Antilock Brake System light and the ASC Automatic Stability Control light to stay on as the ASC uses the ABS brakes with computer assistance to control the car

How to change back brakes? I can't get the brake cylinder to go in.


Do you mean back brake pads or the back brake callipers?
To change pads you need to use a rear brake pads changing tool to screw in the calliper piston or if you are experienced enough you could screw in the calliper with a two mm thick piece of metal sheeting that fits into the grove of the piston.
If you need to replace the whole calliper remove the hand brake cable first and clamp the flexible brake hose remove brake hose, remove the callier with cylinder and then remove the calliper holder. fit new holder pads and locks and the calliper with the piston and the brake hose and the hand brake cable. Bleed the brakes. Mike

Rear electronic patking brake/ caliper looks SCARY.


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
http://www.alpha-bid.com/product244.html
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.
