Having problems with your 2000 Volkswagen Passat 4Motion ?
Rear brake shoes VW lupo 1 ltr
\015 Having replaced rear shoes and cylinder drum wont turn, and cant get it off, have i got to remove cylinder and bearing/hub toi get it off? Please advise\015
Open the brake drum , remove the pads and refit them , it's that simple . you don't need anything just to remove and refit them.
A special tool is required to turn and press the caliper piston at the same time this tool is quite expensive so i sugjest having the pads replaced proffesionally but if you have the time a patience you can try to press the piston in with some slip joint pliers or screw driver while you turn the piston clockwise/ counterclockwise (depending on side) with something else to screw it back into it's bore. best of luck. P.S. many manufacturers are using this style caliper piston now so if your a mr. fix it the special tool is worth buying.
