You Can probably accomplish this yourself if you have a brake pad warning light or ABS/ASC light on you may need a BMW tech to reset the system to complete the job.

There will be 2 bolts on the top of caliper. generally of M10.
Open both bolt and remove brake pads.

Please note that to push the piston back you will be needing special tool, so better take help from mechanic as compnies dont provide those tools with car.

How much should it cost to replace rear brake pads on a 2007 Saab 93?


I had just 35000 KM's on my 2007 9-3 Aero when the brake pads were gone - dealer wanted... wait for it.... $900 to replace just the rear pads and rotors. Dealer also said that Rotors MUST be changed every time the pads are on this car. Purchased new OEM pads and rotors from autopartsway.ca and did the install myself. Took just over an hour, and I am not that mechanically inclined. Dealer will tell you that you need a special compression tool to push the pistons in... I used a C-Clamp and a pair of vice grips (tighten the C-clamp a bit, and rotate the piston with the vice grips... takes quite a while, but is cheap and effective).

Rear Brakes 2005 Jetta


im sorry bro i find that you needing special tools a load of bs. i may be wrong but i really really doubt it. brakes are easy. first locate the caliper and there should be 2 bolts holding that tight. loosen the top bolt and then take out the lower bolt from the caliper. the old pads should just fall out. remove the master cylinder cap. (the jug with brake fluid in it.) compress the piston replace the old pads and push the claiper back down on the rotor. tighten bolts back up pump the brakes till hard with the car off and then repeat for the other side.

I need to replace the rear brakes and rotors on my 2004 Audi A4. Will I need special tools to do this? Can I still do the job without these tools?


'B6' (2001-2004) A4s dont have seperate rotors on the rear brakes like the pre 2001 A4s do. When changing the rear pads + discs the only special tool you will need is a caliper wind back tool. Let me know if you do also need to replace any ABS components aswell as I might be able to advise.

My VW 1.9 Passat diesel y reg rear brake pads need changing, Is this an easy job for an average DIY man? Do I need special tools and anythiing to be aware of.


Yes you will need special tools for a rear brake job. you will need a set of xzn wrenches large ones say 12 and up to 18 I believe, and you will need a caliper tool that spins and compresses the caliper at the same time
