    Cannot compress rear calipers

    trying to replace the rear pads and rotors on an 03 model x-type jag, and it seems that there is constant brake presure in the calipers. I can't even get the caliper off the rotor it is so tight. Does it have to do with ABS where you have to bleed the system presure down before it will release?

    I have the same problem. It seams that no one knows how to do it. I've tried spinning in the piston but to no avail. I broke the bleed nut loose and still no results. I did discover that the piston will spin out so don't try it. I hab to fils a few thousandths off the used pad to get it back in. British engineering is the worst but their coach work is second to none.

There is a special tool that turns the piston back into the caliber or you can use a pair of needle nose pliers

How to reset brake lite on my 2005 X type jaguar?

which brake warning light is on? the xtype does not have pad wear sensors fitted. so i guess you mean the abs light or the handbrake light.more than likely its the abs light and the common problem is the reluctor rings on one or the other of the rear outer constant velocity joints corroded/ fell off get the fault codes out of the abs module to help.

2003 s type brake front pad - what tools are need to change the pads

the front pads are pretty straight forward,just a c clamp is sufficient to press the calibers,make sure the brake fluid reservoir cap is off when you do them..just unbolt the calibers from the rotors and they work the same as standard brakes,but the rear calibers at time will need a caliber tool to turn and press the piston simultaneously

How do you set up electric hand brake after fitting rear pads?(appears to be binding on).on s type jaguar.

Bulletin from Jaguar :

Electronic Park Brake (EPB)
Re-Calibration Procedure
2003 MY-ON

On some 2003 MY-on S-TYPE vehicles, a customer may report a concern of premature
parking brake pad wear or the brakes binding. This condition can result if the electronic
park brake (EPB) system is not re-calibrated after the removal of the rear brake callipers
to replace the brake pads.
Should a customer express concern regarding the above, refer to the calibration
procedure detailed in this bulletin.

1. Reset the EB module:
a. Switch off the ignition.
b. Disconnect the battery for 30 seconds. For additional information, refer to STYPE
Workshop Manual Section 414-01.
c. Reconnect the battery.
2. Start the engine.
3. Firmly apply and release the foot brake five times.
4. Confirm that the message NOT CALIBRATED" or APPLY FOOT AND PARK
BRAKE" is displayed on the instrument cluster message center. This indicates that
the parking brake is in calibration mode.
5. Lightly press the foot brake pedal.
6. Apply the parking brake by using the EB switch.
7. Release the parking brake.
8. Release the foot brake.
9. Confirm that the brake warning lamp is no longer illuminated on the instrument
pack and that the NOT CALIBRATED" message is no longer displayed in the
message center.
10. Apply and release the EPB five times to ensure no error is present.

NB: It is also possible the actuator is bad though.

How do I change the brake pads

piece of cake ,the pistons just push in front and rear ,the handbrake is inside the rear brake disk so dont forget to strip and lubrcate the operating mechanisms for the handbrake with some nice copperslip in the adjuster .Also most important is to polish it every week and clean seats with leather restorer every month after all it is a real car as its a JAGUAR
