I'm not sure about your vehicle but some models must be turned as they go back.

SOURCE: I need to replace the rear brake pads on my Polo 1.9 TDi

this is a turn in caliper, meaning that as you try to compress the piston, you also need to rotate it clockwise. you can buy tool for this at nearly any parts store, and is fairly inexpensive.

SOURCE: how to replace rear brake pads on 2005 jeep liberty

put the back of car on jack stands and secure the front tires so it does not roll and then remove the bolts off the back of the caliper there is normally two one at top and one at bottom and spray it with some kind of oil for rust and make sure you have the right size socket before you try to loosen them and once caliper is off and the old pads removed take one of the old pads and squeeze the piston on the caliper back in by using a "C" clamp and also remove some of the brake fluid from the master cylinder before you do this put the new ones back on and check the brake fluid and make sure it is full and then pump the brakes to make sure you have a good pedal also put some "No Squeak" brake stop on the back of the pads so they don't squeak they will have that where you buy the pads from

SOURCE: how do I replace brake pads on 2007 tucson. I

use a 14mm wrench or socket to remove the caliper bolts/slides. remove caliper. note how old pads came off, match the new pads with same location of old pads ( check for hardware or indicator location). press the caliper piston in . the correct way is to use a caliper press, apply a little pressure to piston, open bleeder screw, press piston all the way in, tighten bleeder. (or grab a 'c' clamp and slowly push the piston in. i would recommend having the rotors machined to for proper wear and to eliminate vibration. for this remove 2 17mm bolts holding caliper bracket on and rotor will slide off.

2007 vw rabbit yellow power steering light coming on


VW rabbit 2007 has electronic power steering so you have to send it for diagnostic testing on an ODB II tester. It is the only way you going to pick up that intermittent fault. The error code on the diagnostic tester will reveal what is causing the problem. But go check out http://volkswagen-polo-highline.blogspot.com/ to see how this gets done.

2007 vw rabbit abs light blinks on a steep grade


abs sensor blinking is usually cause by a bad wheel speed sensor or vehicle speed sensor. not too sure what going up hill is doing. sometimes that can move brake fluid around if its low and will detect low brake fluid, but you brake like would also come on with the abs sensor. check and fill brake fluid to fix that. to fix a sensor you need to bring the sensor readings up on a vw scan tool to see which one is cutting out. should take to vw shop for scan tool. they might charge you .5-1 hour diag time but its better then the hassel and expense of parts replacing. finally if they find nothing wrong with the speed sensors going up hill, then its probably the abs unit. check those in that order and you'll find it.

You can rent the caliper compression tool from O'rielly's auto parts and compress the piston. I did it and it was very easy and made changing the pads a breeze.

You have to pry open the carpet to exposed the assembly. Use a 10mm socket to removed the two nuts that hold the housing from the body. Once you get that done, you open the compartment and removed the bulb. Replaced and proceed the same way you removed it in reversed order.
