Rear brake pad replacement

Post by Mountainbiker » Fri Apr 30, 2021 1:41 pm

Hi, has anyone changed the rear brake pads on a Ateca?
I've changed many pads on cars over the years, but non with an electronic handbrake. Any problems and tips appreciated.

No not yet
I got a diagnostic bluetooth dongle - OBDeleven
And among many useful things it can do
it can put the electronic parking brake into the service position
which I believe is required when come to change the rear pads.

Thanks for the information Ciano I will look into getting one. Have seen that it might be possible to jack the car up, run the car and switch off the parking break and then disconnect the electric plugs on the breaks to keep them released.

That’ll keep them from being applied, but won’t wind them right back, which is what you want to replace the pads.

Thats odd. Might be me but can't find a reference to brake wind back tool in the repair manual. I assume you have replaced the rear pads then?

I changed my rear pads obd 11 to wind out the parking brake, remove pads as described in the link above. The thrust tool in the last picture, last page winds the pistons back to make room for the new pads. I used a g clamp which works just as well. Apply the brakes gently to take up the slack then use the obd 11 to reset the parking brake.

There are plenty of vids on youtube using audi and later vw’s.
