How to replace handbrake motor?

Post by 2008tdihighline » Fri Aug 03, 2018 8:34 pm

Hi, I have to fit a new handbrake motor for one of my calipers, I also have vcds. I'm currently not using the handbrake as the old motor has been removed.

Can someone explain the process of installing the new motor with regards to what position the piston needs to be in before fitting the motor. Does it need to be wound in or out etc

Can I do this without vcds. Will it calibrate itself once fitted and the park button operated?

Have a read at rosstech, as for what position I would say pushed in. ... rake_(EPB)
