If the Master Cylinder BORE size is the same as the bore size required for the caliper you want to replace it with, then YES, you can use your existing Master Cylinder.

SOURCE: I need the torque settings for changing the wheels on my BMW HP2

BMW workshop DVD says Front axle M22x1,5 (greased) = 50NM Front axle pinch bolts = 8NM Brake caliper to fork bolts = 30NM Rear wheel bolts M10x53x1,25 = 60NM
Brake caliper to fork torque needed if changing to SM wheels. Method. Torque greased axle bolt to 50NM, then compress forks several times without using brakes, then tighten both LHS axle pinch bolts to 8NM, then tighten both RHS axle pinch bolts to 8NM. Then test your brakes are working. Front finished. Rear. Torque to 60NM. I torque every second bolt as I work my way around the 5 Torx screws until they have all been torqued and double checked

SOURCE: changing rear brake pads..

if the 04 is the same as my 05 ultra (and i belive it is) the rear caliper can not be removed with out pulling the axel out, and taking the 3 big star bolts out will split the caliper in half, (it is a 2 peice)

take the 2 small star bolts out, use a stiff putty knife to push the pistons back, before you pull the old pads out, make sure you take the cover off the master, slip new pads in, start with the frount and put the bolts thru to hold it then the rear

when you retighten the bolts you want the hear a "pop" that means the rear tip of the bolt is past the retaining spring, if you dont hear a pop the bolts will work there way out, (found this out the hard way, $129 new rotor, $195 new caliper)

HOW TO CHANGE OUT REAR BRAKE PADS


Take the two bolts that hold the caliper into the caliper bracket out. Lift the caliper off the bracket and set it aside without bending the hose too sharply. Notice how the brake pads and other hardware is positioned in the brake caliper bracket. Replace the pads and hardware. You must compress the piston back into the caliper. Use a large C-clamp or a pair of slip joint pliers to do this. Use rags for thin strips of wood to protect the finish on the caliper from damage and scratching. Once this is done, replace the caliper on the bracket being careful not to disturb the pads. Install the bolts and torque to 25 foot pounds of torque. Press the rear brake pedal a few times and the pedal should be firm.

Good Luck

Replace rear brake pads


Rear disc brake pads offer better performance and are not as affected by moisture like conventional brake shoe style brakes are. Rear disc brakes are similar to front disc brakes. The main difference is that rear disc brake systems must incorporate the emergency brake system. There are two methods widely used for the emergency brake with rear disc systems. The first system is a brake shoe inside the brake disc that is actuated by the emergency brake lever. The second is a screw style actuator inside the brake caliper. When activated the brake pads are forced into the brake disc and held tightly by the emergency brake lever.
READ COMPLETELY BEFORE STARTING
Step 1 - Identify Rear Disc Brake Components
rear_brake_pads.jpg Rear disc brake assembly includes; rear brake disc, rear brake pads, brake caliper mount and a caliper mounting screw. (Note: Some vehicles do not have the rotor mounting screw.)
Step 2 - Removing the Rear Brake Caliper Mount Bolts
rear_brake_pads_2.jpg To replace rear brake pads and rotors the rear brake caliper needs to be removed. First loosen the rear brake caliper mount bolts and remove them. Turn counter clockwise.
Step 3 - Lift Rear Brake Caliper from The Caliper Mount
rear_brake_pads_3.jpg After the caliper mount bolts have been removed, gently lift the brake caliper from the caliper mount. Inspect the caliper slides; they should move freely in the caliper mount. Remove rear brake pads and hardware.

Step 4 - Removing Caliper Mount Bolts
rear_brake_pads_4.jpg With a socket wrench or other appropriate removal tool, loosen the rear brake caliper mounting bolts. Remove bolts and lift the caliper mount and remove it from the vehicle. Remove the retaining screw from the disc mounting hole. Tap the rotor gently to release any rust that has accumulated between the rotor and bearing hub. Lift brake rotor from wheel hub holding on tightly, using both hands. You do not want to drop the rotor.

Step 5 - Removing Rear Brake Rotor
rear_brake_rotor.jpg Remove the retaining screw from the disc mounting hole, tap the rotor gently to release any rust that has accumulated between the rotor and bearing hub. Lift brake rotor from wheel hub, hold on using both hands and do not drop.

Step 6 - Install New Brake Rotor
rear_brake_rotor_2.jpg Check the new rotor against the old brake rotor to make sure they are the same size. Clean the mating surface on the wheel hub before the new brake rotor is installed. Reinstall rotor retainer screw.
Step 7 - Reset Rear Brake Caliper
rear_brakes_7.jpg Before new brake pads can be installed, the rear brake caliper must be reset. The reset tool winds the piston back into position so the new brake pads will fit. This style of brake caliper will not compress with a clamp tool; it can only be reset with the proper reset tool.
Step 8 - Reinstall Rear Caliper Mount and Install New Rear Brake Pads
rear_brake_rotor_3.jpg After the caliper has been reset, reinstall caliper mounting bolts and make sure the bolts are tight. Then match up the old brake pads to the new brake pads. They should be exactly the same except, of course; the old ones will be worn out. Check the new brake pads for proper fit and install any brake hardware that is required.
Step 9 - Remount Rear Brake Caliper
rear_brake_rotor_4.jpg Reinstall the brake caliper, align brake pad hardware and reinstall caliper mounting bolts. (Note: align the rear peg of the brake pad to the groove in the caliper piston.) Recheck and retighten all caliper and caliper mount bolts. Bleed brake system to relieve any air in the system. Before driving the vehicle, push the brake pedal down and let it up slowly. This operation forces the brake pads to travel to the brake rotors. DO NOT DRIVE VEHICLE until proper brake pedal operation resumes. When test driving vehicle listen for any unusual noises during the operation of the brakes.
WARNING! Always have the vehicle under inspection on level ground, in park with the emergency brake on. Always wear protective eyewear, gloves and necessary clothing before inspection or work begins. Never crank an engine over when anyone is near the battery or engine. Always have an operational fire extinguisher close by, obey all first aid instructions in the event of an injury. Never stand in front or behind a vehicle when cranked over or running. When engine is cranked over keep hands and clothing away from rotating components. Never move a car without proper brake pedal operation.

    Rear brake pad installation 99 volkswagen passat


    If you can't see diagrams(sometimes happens) let me know and I will get them to you

    1. Raise and support the vehicle. Remove the rear wheels.
    2. If equipped, disconnect the brake pad wear sensor from the harness.
    3. Counterhold the lower sliding pin using a thin open-end wrench and remove the caliper-to-sliding pin hex bolt.
    4. Pivot the caliper upward or if necessary remove the upper caliper-to-sliding pin hex bolt.
    5. Using a brake caliper retraction tool, select the appropriate sized piston press arbor and install the tool onto the brake caliper. Following the tool manufacturer's recommendations, use the tool to rotate the caliper piston clockwise as it is pressed into the brake caliper housing, until it is fully retracted.
    0900c152800c30b8.jpgUse a thin open-end wrench to . . . 0900c152800c30b7.jpg. . . support the caliper sliding pin when removing the caliper mounting bolt 0900c152800c30d7.jpgUse a disc brake caliper piston retracting tool that will rotate the caliper piston as it is pressed into the caliper 0900c152800c30d8.jpgThe rear caliper piston is slotted to allow a retracting tool to rotate the piston when replacing the brake padsTo install:
    1. Clean the brake caliper and all sliding surfaces. With the caliper piston pressed fully back into the caliper housing, check for leaking fluid and damaged dust boots.
    2. If equipped, install a new brake pad wear sensor in the pad if the plastic part has been worn through on the old sensor. New sensors are not required unless the wire inside the plastic part has been exposed.
    3. Lubricate the slider bolts with approved brake grease.
    4. Install the brake pads onto the bracket assembly, and then carefully lower the caliper over the caliper mount. Check and make sure that the pad springs are correctly seated.
    5. Replace all removed caliper-to-sliding pin bolts and torque to:
    6. 1990-97 Passat models: 25 ft. lbs. (35 Nm)
    7. 1998-00 Passat models: 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm)
    8. If equipped, connect the brake wear sensor wire to the harness. Check for a good connection as most problems with the sensor circuit are caused by faulty connections. Check that the wire is held by the loop in the dust cover and the connector is held at the clips.
    9. Install the wheels and hand tighten the lug bolts. Lower the vehicle carefully until the tires begin to contact the surface and torque the lug bolts to specification in a crisscross pattern to:
    10. M12 x 1.5 lug bolts: 81 ft. lbs. (110 Nm)
    11. M14 x 1.5 lug bolts: 89 ft. lbs. (120 Nm)
    Feel free to contact if you have any questions
